Track: Speak in Rounds

Artist: Grizzly Bear

Album: Shields

Throwing up Grizzly Bear as a jam is so obvious, but it still needs to be done. This band is easily my favorite to pop up in the last decade, and their new album shows their reign is in no danger of ending. Pick any song off this album and it will impress: this one in particular showcases that G-Bear hibernate-then-pounce style that they do so well.

I often laugh when I hear a song that is just so damn good for the first time, a laugh of near-disbelief. This album made me laugh a lot. I can’t wait to seem them at the Greek on October 10th.
