Last year Grizzly Bear returned with their long-awaited new album Painted Ruins (via RCA Records) and we caught their excellent show at Brooklyn Steel.

They’re still touring hard in support of the new record and this includes a stop in New Jersey for a performance at The Wellmont Theater on Friday, June 15.

There are still some tickets for sale for the performance but we have a few tickets to give away to some lucky winners. Read the rest of this entry »

Grizzly Bear at Public Arts (August 23, 2017)

By Will Oliver, October 17th 2017 — with 2 comments

Grizzly Bear will headline Brooklyn Steel for three shows in November, but back on August 23 they played a very intimate show at new venue Public Arts to celebrate the release of new album Painted Ruins via RCA Records.

This was my first time seeing Grizzly Bear since their set at Governors Ball in 2013, making it a much more intimate experience. It was my first time at the venue, which felt like a Mercury Lounge sized room with the aesthetic of Terminal 5. A bit of an odd place for Grizzly Bear but when you get to see them in a tiny room like this, who am I to complain?

Grizzly Bear have officially announced the release of their new album Painted Ruins, their fifth, which will be released on August 18 via RCA Records, their first for the label.

In addition to the album announcement, the band has released a brand new track from the album entitled “Mourning Sound,” following “Three Rings,” the first song released from the album.

While “Three Rings” was more of an Ed Droste track, “Mourning Sound” feels like a more shared, collaborative effort being the band, although kicked off by Ed, Daniel Rossen’s vocals are welcomed in a big way during the chorus of “we walk with the mourning sound.” It’s another pretty track from the group, who sure are back in a big, big way.

Stream “Mourning Sound” below, and check out their newly announced two dates, which include two shows at Brooklyn Steel.

Gene Clark

Gene Clark’s (of The Byrds) 1974 album No Other was one of those albums that was initially a commercial failure, but went on to become a highly regarded cult classic. It’s so beloved that some members of prolific indie bands will come together to perform the entire album live on tour.

The band will include Alex Scally & Victoria Legrand of Beach House, Robin Pecknold (Fleet Foxes), Daniel Rossen (Grizzly Bear), Hamilton Leithauser (The Walkmen), Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak), Iain Matthews (Plainsong/ Fairport Convention), and more.

The tour will take place late in January, and will bring them here in New York on January 25 at MHOW. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday at noon (they’re on AMEX presale now).

Find the list of tour dates posted below.

Jan. 22 – Philadelphia, PA – Union Transfer
Jan. 23 – Baltimore, MD – Floristree
Jan. 24 – Washington, DC – 9:30 Club
Jan. 25 – New York, NY – Music Hall of Williamsburg

[new]: Grizzly Bear – Listen and Wait

Grizzly Bear Shields Expanded Version Artwork

Grizzly Bear release the extended version of last year’s Shields on November 12 (via Warp Records). The reissue is titled Shields Expanded and Shields B-Sides and we already heard one new cut not too long ago, titled “Will Calls.” They’ve hit us with another cut today, titled “Listen and Wait.”

The Dan Rossen led-track that could have made a case for making the final cut of Shields. It’s pretty great.

It’s been a long time since we’ve heard or seen anything from Fleet Foxes, or their frontman, Robin Pecknold. I was beginning to get worried. But alas, earlier this week he made his return on live TV.

Pecknold, along with Daniel Rossen of Grizzly Bear and drummer Neil Morgan, covered Pearl Jam’s “Corduroy” on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, who have been celebrating Pearl Jam all week long with other bands covering their songs, as well as Pearl Jam themselves playing.

Grizzly Bear – Will Calls (Marfa Demo)

Last year Grizzly Bear released their great album Shields. On November 12 they will expand on the album with a special edition titled: Shields: Expanded and Shields: B-Sides.

Along with the album it will include 8 b-sides, remixes, and demos. You can take a listen to one demo of a great song titled “Will Call” that are being titled Marfa Demos. These are from when the band first recorded in Marfa, Texas, before finally settling down to track later in Cape Cod and New York.

“Will Call” is an exceptional track, one that I would have loved to see on Shields. It’s nearly seven minutes long, and takes many different directions including a jazzy outro. Either way, we have it now. Check it out below.

Grizzly Bear @ Governors Ball (June 9, 2013)

By Will Oliver, June 13th 2013 — with 1 comment

I’ve seen Grizzly Bear countless of times now, but their set at Governors Ball on Sunday was one of the most special yet. They graced us with their lovely sounds as the sun was setting over a gorgous skyline. The music was literally in tune with the surroundings of Randells island creating something unforgettable.

No matter how many times I see Grizzly Bear, they find ways to amaze.
