Grizzly Bear have given us the album cover and track listing to their highly, and I mean highly anticipated 3rd album (2nd as the full band) Veckatimest (due out May 26th!). To be honest when I heard the album name and discovered that it was an uninhabited island, I had a pretty clear idea of what the cover would look like. In my head was a photo of some beautiful piece of land with possibly a body of water in the background. I’m sure most of you had something similar in your head. However the album artwork was not even close to that. Grizzly Bear caught me off guard with the album art. But oh man is it colorful! I actually am really digging it, it is quite a feast for the eyes. Just like the music will be for the ears. The album cover just screams bad ass record. Oh…it will be.

Damn if you couldn’t tell, I am really pumped to hear this album. Honestly this has to be my most anticipated of 2009. I have had the Letterman version of “Two Weeks” playing for a week straight it seems. It is just that good. I wish I could just get to May already! I guess it’s time for Yellow House…again! 🙂
