The second track from their upcoming record, Shields, to drop on Warp Records on September 18th, was released today via BBC Radio 1. The masters of texture are at it again, confirming my belief that this will be one of the best releases of the year. Screw that, of course it will be. It’s Grizzly Bear. They’re coming into their own. They bring something to indie that few others are able to – the sensibilities of touch, color, and restraint. They consistently explore new territory while not ignoring melody. Thank god for Grizzly Bear.
