Grizzly Bear is one of those almost ubiquitous indie bands who have made it huge simply by persevering. They garner a large audience because eventually it becomes cool to listen to them. It’s hip, it’s cool. That means a great deal and I don’t wish to diminish their success …but…
I’m not really of that ilk. I can take or leave Grizzly Bear but it is true that I have read more than a few reviews claiming that their new album Shields is some sort of masterpiece. Instead of me telling you it isn’t very good when I have already explained that I am not a fan, here is your chance to listen to it and decide for yourself.
Maybe I should give them another chance.
By the way, if you don’t have Spotify by now, you really should download it now…here.
Personally, I’m more partial to these songs.
Listen to some of their other music on Soundcloud.
