I am listener number 302 of the first track released from Grizzly Bear’s forthcoming album. The band announced today that they will release their fourth album on September 17th and that a worldwide tour will follow, including a date at the Paramount on October 5th. Color me stoked.
The track, “Sleeping Ute”, feels rougher and more organic at times than the fare found on Veckatimest. The sound is louder and more free, but the music is still highly structured. The last minute and change featured vocalist Daniel Rossen singing over a trademark acoustic swell from guitar and banjo. This should be one of the best releases of the year.
