Grizzly Bear Bring “Two Weeks” To Conan, Announce Deluxe Veckatimst

The last time Grizzly Bear visited Conan, the Tonight Show host was still doing his show out of NYC and the band was just starting to prime the pump for Veckatimest with a pre-release performance of “While You Wait For The Others.” That was over a year ago. Last night the band visited O’Brien in Los Angeles with their Beach House BFF Victoria Legrand for a take “Two Weeks,” on the same day they announced the release of Veck special edition package. Turns out that album’s got legs. (And turns out that’s Matt Popieluch from Foreign Born on the shadowy keys back there.)

Victoria can sing. Veckatimst is out, and the Veckatimest special edition is out in the US and the UK on 11/2. It’ll feature a “24-page photo booklet and a second disc containing seven songs recorded live in sessions around the world.” That disc’s tracklist:
