[Leak] Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest (5/26)
Well, we all knew it wouldn't last long but I'm not sure anyone thought it would leak this early. BUT its floating around. First glance of the album, seems it be as brilliant as predicted. As to the question of if it will surpass Merriweather Post Pavilion at the top of the year end chart, I will only say this... it will take a lot to pass MPP.
The flow of the album is nice and relaxing... Southern Point has a spacey feel with structured strumming over the top. But gets more involved about a min in. Two Weeks, is a brilliant number, as great as the Letterman performance. All We Ask builds slowly, adding layer after layer as the song goes on. Fine for Now, is a great song with some impressive acoustic guitar in it. I'm not going to ruin the rest of it... but good luck finding it. I will say that this it my favorite album cover this year.
