What Grizzly Bear’s Been Up To Since Veckatimest

Yesterday, Grizzly Bear kicked off their new album cycle with “Sleeping Ute,” a tempestuous Rossen-penned gem that the comment section wanted to marry. (“I do!” – You guys.) The band’s still-untitled record comes 9/18 via Warp, and it is something we will probably talk about a fair bit around here, because it’s been three solid… More »

Grizzly Bear – “Sleeping Ute”

Behold, the opening track from Grizzly Bear’s full-length followup to Veckatimest. TODAY WE ARE ALL GRIZZLY BEARS. Fun Fact about that new Grizzly Bear press photo above: The fourth younger dude in flannel sort of obscured in the shot above is not Dan Rossen!

Watch Daniel Rossen Cover “Hang Me, Oh Hang Me”

Dan Rossen has always been Grizzly Bear’s Earth element, a perfectly polar foil to Ed Droste’s more honey-dipped ethereality, and in this video he indulges that grounded, dusty, salt-of-the-earth vibe with a cover of folk standard “Hang Me, Oh Hang Me.” It’s a one-camera affair against a black backdrop and the levels are imperfect, and… More »

Daniel Rossen – “Silent Song”

Daniel Rossen, the man behind many of Grizzly Bear and Department Of Eagles’ finest moments, and the child prodigy behind this insanely delightful Elvis impression, is releasing his proper solo debut this spring.

CANT – “Too Late, Too Far” Video

Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor, the man masquerading as CANT, has made a video for “Too Late, Too Far,” one of the pheromone-soaked polyrhythmic slinkers from his debut solo LP Dreams Come True. The Richard Peete-directed clip opens with some “Vomit“-esque automotive chic, and then some mystic woods, cinematic smoke, VHS weirdness and fabric monsters take… More »

It’s CANT’s live coming out party in NYC this week.

Indie Rockers Respond To NY Legalizing Gay Marriage

New York just became the 6th largest state to approve same-sex marriage. Yes! The Senate bill passed 33-to-29, Governor Cuomo signed the measure shortly after, and the law goes into effect in 30 days. A historic night to be sure, one probably best not spent in front of a laptop. Too late. But in case… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: March 2011

The March edition of our Monthly Mix series runs the gamut from South London mixtape hip-hop, to lady-baiting R&B, pop, to lady-fronted arpeggiated-vocal ukulele/sax funk. Or at least it runs that gamut within its first three tracks. There are plenty of collaborations (the lead harmonizers from Fleet Foxes and Grizzly Bear, harmonizing; PS I Love… More »

Download A Free Robin Pecknold EP (Feat. Ed Droste)

Today’s sneak-released three-song EP is credited simply to Robin Pecknold, tweeted from his @FleetFoxes account, with one track featuring stylistic forefather (forelderbrother?)

Watch Lil’ Dan Rossen’s Elvis Impression

If Ezra Koenig’s impression of a dorm room YouTube Dave Matthews balladeer wasn’t on point enough, try this perfect rendering of Elvis by Grizzly Bear singer/guitarist Dan Rossen. He’s REALLY CUTE. (Also he’s five years old here so that is not an inappropriate observation.) Lil’ Dan doesn’t have a lip curl, but he’s got plenty… More »

Grizzly Bear, Fleet Foxes Ripped Off By TV Jingles Too?

In the wake of that collection of commercials swiping Sigur Rós’s sounds to evoke their emotion without paying the band any residuals, Pitchfork has found some great examples of commercials also ripping off Fleet Foxes’s “White Winter Hymnal” and Grizzly Bear’s “Two Weeks.” Compare:… More »

Grizzly Bear Play The Lottery

After soundtracking the Volkswagen Superbowl “Punchdub” ad with “Two Weeks,” Grizzly Bear’s given a new song to the Washington State Lotto. The 60-second spot was directed by Patrick Daughters, the guy who did the original head-exploding “Two Weeks” video.
