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 eachMore »

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… 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 build… More »

New Foreign Born – “Vacationing People”

These days the new cool is getting artist blogs to blog about other artists. Extra cool hunting points are awarded if you go Kanye-style and start premiering songs and videos for your RSS subscribers. So in addition to owning the 2009 Q1.5 music blog discourse, Grizzly Bear is now in the business of premiering Foreig… More »

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 HouseMore »

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… 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… 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. 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 »

Stereogum’s Favorite Artists’ Favorite Things In 2008

We love year-end lists, it's really a shame that no one made any this month. To remedy that, we asked a handful of our favorite artists what music they dug most over the last twelve months. No Age, Grizzly Bear, Girl Talk, Antony Hegarty, Robin Pecknold, Sara Quin, and Kevin Barnes are among the familiar… More »

The 20 Albums We’re Most Excited To Hear In 2009

There a few more days of pretending to look busy at work ahead, but as far as our iTunes are concerned 2009 can't get here soon enough. We're done with the lists. It's time for the new. We pored over the album-release sheets, took myriad Progress Reports, and narrowed the field to a… More »

Animal Collective Respond To The Web Sheriff Fiasco, Plan An Apology To Grizzly Bear

Everyone's sorry! Enough already, we know. A byproduct of leak culture is the inevitable fallout from policing intellectual property rights. This can be interesting. But as suggested by both Avey Tare and State.ie in this new interview, the Web Sheriff/Grizzly Bear/"Brothersport" saga has already spiraled out of control, from a silly story about… More »
