Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest

So I have pretty much been listening to Grizzly Bear non stop this week. I'm going to see them at The Wiltern in June (inshallah). I have the tickets.. No one can take this away from me! Ill let you know how that goes ;)

When I first heard of them I thought they were good but not quite great. It took a while (couple months of occasional listening) for me to "wrap my mind" around their music and then they almost suddenly blew me away.

I went through a very similar process with Radiohead and they are now my favorite band!

Below is their first single off of their new album Veckatimest which is due May 25 via Warp. It happens to be one of my least favorite songs on the album (still good though). I don't want to get in trouble for posting anything else that has yet to be released :/ (look into "Ready, Able" if you can get your hands on it... "While You Wait for the Others" is also good (vid above)).
