Grizzly Bear has been elegantly taking over the US indie music scene for a few years now with their lo-fi, harmonious haunts and dreamy folk soundscapes.  At times enchanting, I found them often lulling (as in Zzzzzz), and although a few tracks were quite outstanding, I never was quite 100% enlisted on the craze.  But in these grizzly times, I've had much more time on my hands to comb through music both old and new: some in my queue and some not yet acquired. I finally got around to Veckatimest, Grizzly Bear's third full length album, and it officially validated their critically acclaimed reputation.  With a marked advancement in production and sound, Grizzly bear made a record that is full of emotion, experimentation and is catchy, without sacrificing their underground charm.  I hope you enjoy these two tracks as much as I did - they caught me on the very first listen.

I uncovered the sheet to find a note that read "Ich Liebe Dich." What are the chances that one may find another who loves them just the same?

I used to listen to Chet Baker when I was madly missing her.  Not a whole lot has changed since then.
