Today's Shield From Boredom: Grizzly Bear 'Yet Again'
  • THURSDAY, AUGUST 02, 2012

  • Posted by: Joe Puglisi

Grizzly Bear raised a few eyebrows when they dropped the first track from their forthcoming LP Shields -- the song, "Sleeping Ute", barely made a dent in the ears of the masses before critics were hailing it one of the top tracks of the year so far. So it's not a terrible shocker that the next song, "Yet Again," yet again has our blood pumping.

The song follows the similar delicate dynamics of Grizzly Bear's previous work, but allows itself to get a little uncharacteristically unhinged towards the end. This more rock-heavy sonic territory could elevate their status from indie punchline/car commercial fame to actual fame, especially with what we're now predicting is an exciting collection of songs.

In case I wasn't clear before: stay for the ending. You won't regret it.



The band will appear later this month on The Colbert Report for StePhest Colbchella: RocktAugustfest.

Shields is out September 18th on Warp.
