Grizzly Bear Releasing ‘Shields’ B-sides and Remixes, Hear Unreleased “Will Calls”

Calling Brooklyn-ites Grizzly Bear modern composers is an understatement. Each one of their songs sees so much stress, labor, and focus in every step of its creation–from writing to recording to production–that it gives me a headache just thinking about it; that is, until I actually listen to the song and fall over swooning. Getting […]

REVIEW: Grizzly Bear – Shields

Artist: Grizzly Bear Album: Shields Genre: Indie, folk rock Label: Warp Records This album is quite infuriating. In the course of my listening, I’ve spun from abject hatred to mild indifference to partial enjoyment, then back to hatred and then enjoyment again. Basically, I’m not quite sure what to make of it.
