Grizzly Bear Bumped From Letterman

It happens to the best of ‘em. GM’s Bob Lutz talked so much on last night’s Late Show, there was no time for a string quartet-assisted “Ready, Able.” A bummed Ed Droste reports they’ve rescheduled for July. More »

Fred Falke Remixes Grizzly Bear

Just when you were thinking of being over “Two Weeks.” The Remixer Of The Year race I just made up seemed to be tipped in the Golden Filter’s favor just weeks ago, but after the Filter and Fred Falke’s showdown over Little Boots’s “New In Town,” and then his exclusive knockout reworkings for Annie and… More »

Grizzly Bear’s “While You Wait For The Others” On Jools

In addition to their UK TV debut with “Two Weeks” last week, Grizzly Bear performed Veckatimest’s other pre-release sensation “While You Wait For The Others” for Jools’s Friday show. Watch them both here. And good news: the “Two Weeks” version is no longer an Evaluation Copy. More »

Grizzly Bear Make Their UK TV Debut On Jools Holland

Grizzly Bear finally broke the telly-glass ceiling last night. Via Ed’s Twitter account of the evening, we know one song went live, with two more recorded for Friday’s extended show. First up is “Two Weeks,” which is a good choice for a first impression. Welcome to Veckatimest, The UK. More »

Dan Rossen Covers JoJo For The New Yorker

Well, it was actually for Ed Droste’s birthday, but he performed it as part of the New Yorker’s “Love Is Strange” Speakeasy event this past Valentine’s Day at Galapagos in Dumbo. You remember, it was the song we posted when Grizzly Bear/Department Of Eagles wanted to make sure you knew they still loved each other. More »

Grizzly Bear Does “Two Weeks” Live For The First Time With Victoria From Beach House

If Twitter’s good for anything (probably not), it could be the realization that most rock stars live lives primarily built of small moments just as routinely mundane as ours. Except for when they’re tweeting about stuff that makes this list. One e.g. from that spread was Ed from Grizzly Bear’s confession of undying… More »

SXSW 2009: Friday In Photos

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy
On Friday we shook off the early-morning cobwebs and made a beeline to the Pitchfork/Windish Bash in time to catch the last couple tracks by psychedelic post-Vanishing Voice Brooklynites Woods on the outside stage (as far as labels go, this was undeniably the year of the Woodsist) and SchoolMore »

New Grizzly Bear – “Southern Point”

Yesterday, in Stereogum’s 101st blog post (jesus) on Grizzly Bear, we highlighted “Cheerleader,” which Amrit called “an outright standout on an LP full of them.” It’s now the most commented new thread on the site, with you guys arguing over the fidelity of the stream and whether “Cheerleader” was the ideal promotional track to launch… More »

New Grizzly Bear – “Cheerleader”

Oh right, Grizzly Bear have a new record. Whatever you think of Veckatimest, and most of you seem to think a lot vis a vis this year’s record from that other set of collected animals, “Cheerleader” is an outright standout on an LP full of them. As mentioned on premature assessment, the track builds o… More »

New Foreign Born – “Vacationing People”

These days the new cool is getting artist blogs to blog about other artists.

Premature Evaluation: Grizzly Bear – Veckatimest

No secret we’ve been excited about this one for awhile. And as the band blogged, it’s no secret that a transcode of the album is burning up torrent sites a bit earlier than anticipated. On the other hand, between live shows and television appearances, the wait for a Yellow House followup’s seemed interminable, Grizzly Bear’… More »

Grizzly Bear Blog About Veckatimest Leak, Announce Tour Dates

If you didn’t hear from your message board or torrent tracking site of choice, you probably did from Ed Droste’s Twitter: Veckatimest leaked. If you know that, you probably know that Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold has already called it “the album of the 00s.” Far be it for us to be hyperbolic about Grizzly Bear,… More »

Grizzly Bear/Final Fantasy With The Brooklyn Philharmonic @ BAM, Brooklyn 2/28/09

Well, that was wonderful. On Saturday night at the Brooklyn Academy Of Music, Final Fantasy and Grizzly Bear experimented with full sets of material accompanied by the Brooklyn Philharmonic. The results were masterful, obvs. Final Fantasy’s material is inherently symphonic, so the orchestral interpretation was a natural step. For Yellow House, the reinterpretation was more… More »

Grizzly Bear’s Veckatimest Album Art, Tracklist

So after finding out what the-album-that-somehow-comes-up-in-every-comment-thread was called, the only outstanding issue was: how exactly do you visually conceptualize a Veckatimest? I figure either you incorporate imagery of the namesake uninhabited isle, or create sort of a hand-drawn collage of various geometric shapes rendered in pastels and earth tones to capture the breadth of emotio… More »

New Grizzly Bear Album Gets A Title And It’s … Veckatimest

You know, one of the Elizabeth Islands of Dukes County, Massachusetts, USA.? But you already guessed that from Ed’s recent Twitter riddle:

New album title begins with the letter V. Close enough to Y for Yellow House. Only W and X getting in the way, and keeping Y and V apart.

Obviously. So… More »

Grizzly Bear’s “Service Bell” Now With Extra Feist

On Horn Of Plenty, “Service Bell” was just a lonely little Droste with a dorm room and a four-track. Years later he gets to revisit the track with a band full of Brooklyn’s finest and a lady named Leslie. It’s good to be Grizzly Bear. Great version, great comp, great cause. Hear the track at… More »

New Grizzly Bear – “Deep Blue Sea”

Continuing the daily track-by-track unveiling of the Dressner brothers’ Dark Was The Night charity comp, today’s tune is a reworked studio version of Grizzly’s “Deep Blue Sea” cover, basically the Friend version with a little more Grizzly filigree. Hear it over at MySpace all day. More »
