new grizzly bear lp … veckatimest


All the kids are getting antsy for the new Grizzly Bear album. We can expect some good things from what we’ve heard in “While You Wait For The Others” and “Two Weeks” and what Ed Droste has described the new tracks as “Fuller! Livelier! Clearer!” Nico Muhly has lent his hands on string arrangements and Beach House’s Victoria Legrand guests on “Two Weeks.” A quite peculiar album title, Veckatimest is based off of this (Mass pride woot!). A working list of tracks include:

“About Face”
“All We Ask”
“Cheerleader (Live in Boston)”
“Ready, Able”
“Southern Point”
“That’s Not True”
“Two Weeks (from Letterman)”
“While You Wait For The Others (from KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic)”
“Fine For Now (Live in Boston)”

“I Live With You”

We should get a better idea of how the studio recordings might sound after their February 28th show with the Brooklyn Philharmonic. Veckatimest will be released in May via Warp.
