Right. First things first. I love Grizzly Bear. I mean, *love*. I cannot fully express my admiration for the Veckatamist album. I think Daniel Rossen has a voice and a singular and peculiar ear for melody that make him stand out a mile from his contemporaries.
So I’ve been waiting for a new album. And waiting. And waiting. Apparently this year. Or maybe not.
And then suddenly I hear a song on the radio yesterday and I was like – that HAS to be Grizzly Bear. Well, it is. And it isn’t. It’s Daniel Rossen on his own, who’s just released a solo EP. And wow, what a piece of work it is.
Here’s the single:
And here’s him doing an astonishing live performance of one of the other tracks.
Tell me you love this. I think I’ll be sad if you don’t.
