Grizzly Bear Waits While The Sun Sets

Apr 22nd, 2008 // 2 Comments


This will probably get me kicked out of whatever music-blogger clubs haven’t booted me already, but I haven’t really listened to Grizzly Bear that much. “Knife” was OK, but it suffered for me from reading so much about it before I actually heard it–it became one of those songs that sounded exactly the way every writer described it, which leeched away some of its charm. Which is why I’m glad I heard “While You Wait For The Others,” which the band debuted on last night’s Late Night With Conan O’Brien, right after it came out; loose-limbed and pretty, it’s one of those songs that will sound extra-lovely during late-summer nights on a lake. (I won’t say much more, so as not to spoil it for you.) [RedLasso via Catbirdseat]

    I- gasp!- prefer the CSS version of Knife. How’s that for shameful opinions?

    ugh. i’m going to pretend you didnt’ say that. Kisskiss.

    But knife isn’t the best track. For me it’s all about colorado and central and remote.
