Boomkat Product Review:
Grizzly Bear celebrate the 15th anniversary of their iconic second album (and first recorded as a full band) Yellow House. The new edition of the album is a re-cut repress and will be available in Clear 2LP and classic Black 2LP.
Grizzly Bear make measured experimental pop music, kind of like Sufjan Stevens thrown into a food blender with a member of Paavoharju and a severed leg of one of the Animal Collective. Brian Wilson tried and succeeded to change pop music way back in the mid 20th century, and somehow he crossed over to the mainstream, this Brooklyn based band are attempting the same kind of genre-defiance and happy-go-lucky poppishness but inject it with a contemporary experimental aesthetic that is thoroughly enticing.
Those of you who heard the band’s first album ‘Horn of Plenty’ will know what to expect from ‘Yellow House’, as this record takes off where it’s predecessor finished, working in every way to better it. Opening track ‘Easier’ weaves samples and bubbling loops into half sung songs, while ‘Knife’ nestles somewhere between the slightly worrying 50s rock oddness of David Lynch’s Mullholland Drive or Blue Velvet.
