Grizzly Bear - Shields

Stream: Grizzly Bear - Shields Thanks to the good folks over at NPR Music, you can now stream Grizzly Bear’s latest studio effort, Shields. The album is the highly acclaimed indie rock band’s fourth full-length album and their debut release on Warp Records. As one might expect from Grizzly Bear, Shields is complex and uncompromising with its psychedelic passages and explorative song structures yet accessible thanks to its exalted sense of grace. While some fans might be disappointed by the record’s focus on baroque instrumentation over the electronic experimentation found on Yellow House--the band did sign to Warp Records after all--it’s difficult to come up with a band that can craft dual-natured songs the way Grizzly Bear can.
