The Merriweather Post Pavilion version of Animal Collective’s already-the-jam-of-’09 “Brother Sport” recently made its way to the radio. Then it made its way to all the blogs. This included the Grizzly Bear blog, too, because Grizzly Bear also have ears. As you know 2008 was an historic year, and also as you know it will be best remembered for the debut of the Web Sheriff. In case you forgot about him, though, here’s one more hit for you to consider before making your year-end lists.
When “Brother Sport” went up, the Sheriff got policing. His tour took him to all the blogs. This included the Grizzly Bear blog, too. Only by the time the Sheriff got to the Grizzly site, theirs was the last track standing, resulting in a hardcore letter from the We Sheriff demanding an apology (to Animal Collective, to Domino, and of course to the Web Sheriff), and that this apology conform precisely to the one the Web Sheriff wrote for them. This is full service web patrol. Read the full hardcore letter at the Grizzly Bear blog, but we implore you not to laugh because the Web Sheriff’s dispatch specifically states this is no laughing matter. You can still hear the song at HypeM.
UPDATE: Grizzly Bear responds.
