From the Archives 6/13/08: Grizzly Bear - On a Neck, On a Spit
When Grizzly Bear's Yellow House debuted in 2006, it sparked a frenzy of critical acclaim. However, I didn't seem to take much notice for reasons I cannot explain. Honestly, I have no idea why it took me four months to listen to Yellow House, even though my favorite writers loved it and it came out on one of my favorite labels. However, through internet browsing, I stumbled upon The Take Away Shows' video of Grizzly Bear and immediately bought the album. Together, The Take Away Shows and Grizzly Bear gave me the aesthetic pleasure I needed to last a long time, which they've done or will do for you.
