    These guys are beyond that. Again, there is a warmth to their records that AC don't have. Although I am not an AC expert.

    These guys are more musically skilled than Animal Collective. The songs are more composed, in a traditional sense. It's gorgeous music.

    Neither am I, Andrew, I just felt a lot of experimental pop meets Brian Wilson sort of thing when I first listened to MPP, thought that kinda sounded like what was being described.

    I'll just have to listen in the morning.

    I just downloaded this tonight. So far I am completely smitten. I'm glad I'm going to Bonnaroo.

    Hey remember when you could see Grizzly Bear and Deerhunter play together. Those were good times. Fuckin' a that show was incredible.
    Where did you see them with Deerhunter?

    I have only seen them twice, once was in support of Feist, the other was at the Troubadour a couple years back which was fantastic and I think Foreign Born was their opener if I remember correctly.

    Foreign Born did indeed open. That show was great. I also saw them at UCLA the day after the Troubadour show (I booked that one, boiiiiiiiiii). They were also great at Coachella and Pitchfork, but their best set that I've seen was at the Disney Concert Hall. The place was in awe afterwards. It was truly incredible.

    I really wanted to go to that show at the Disney Hall but some personal shit got in the way. I remember hearing about that UCLA bit after the troub show, but if I remember correctly my friends were telling me it was a student only event...

    I saw them with Deerhunter at Neumos in Seattle... 2007.

    And Panda Bear is a better drummer than Chris will ever be, but that's not worth debating... Neither is any discussion of musical skill. Both bands admire the other, but they are not really comparable.

    Veckatimest is not a band, it's the name of the new Grizzly Bear album. I say this because I assumed you knew Grizzly Bear was playing bonnaroo already.

    Yes, I was aware of Grizzly Bear at Roo. I've been bouncing back btwn work stations and this thread and must have skipped over the post that identified this as a Grizzly Bear album. Veckatimest was an unfamiliar word, just assumed it was another band everyone liked of which I'd never heard...

    Either way, I've been meaning to get into GB for a while, several friends have recommended them. Guess it'll happen now.

    I can't explain why, but this album gives me the feeling of being suspended in water. Holy shit, was that pretentious. Anyways, this is an incredible album. Grizzly Bear have hit upon an incredibly distinctive sound here, and they explore it over the course of the album, which is not something we get the privilege to experience that often. I love this album so much.

    I'm giving these guys another chance. Yellow House didn't really click, and I don't have a reason to hate these guys. When it finishes downloading I'll give you guys my first impressions.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    Josh:





    Those are both off their last album. I haven't heard the new one yet (didn't even know there was a new one until now because I don't pay attention to anything any more), but those two songs are a good starting point.

    This album is fan-fucking-tastic. I'm happy to hear that my 3 favorite live songs they've done recently (Two Weeks, Fine For Now and While You Wait for the Others)

    I should've gotten tickets for their BAM show.

    Seeing them live was pretty much it for me. After that, each song off Yellow House sounded bigger and better. I recommend a live viewing to all who have foolishly not seen them yet. I changed my stance on the Silverback vs. Grizzly debate because I saw Grizzly Bear in Philly and the doc Grizzlyman in the same week. Gabe ws so pissed. He almost didn't let me back on the team.

    If I had to coose between MPP and Veckatimest right now, I wouldn't be able to.

    Thank you, Patrick. Both were excellent. Just starting the new album now.

    Sometimes the official message boards of music festivals don't like illegal music distribution going on.
