Open-air with Grizzly Bear ! Last Wednesday I went to a concert by the American Indie band Grizzly Bear and once again I was shivering the whole time, not knowing if it was because of the excitement or the cold temperatures… However, Grizzly Bear ’s show was amazing and so was the location. They played at the “Summer of Music” in Dachau, in the near of Munich. About a thousand people came to the concert, all wearing winter clothes because it was so cold and there was even “Glühwein” (mulled wine) being sold. But when [...]
Last Saturday's Record Store Day saw many interesting and sometimes even bizarre new releases and collaborations from many artists. One of them was some sort of split-single between exerimental folkers GRIZZLY BEAR, legendary BRIAN ENO and electronic producer NICOLAS JAAR. The last one remixed Sleeping Ute - the opening track from last year's Shields longplayer The post Grizzly Bear's "Sleeping Ute" with remix by Nicolas Jaar appeared first on Nothing But Hope And Passion - NBHAP - Music Magazine & more .

Foto: Raphaela Campos Tal como um poeta que busca a perfeição na sua obra verso por verso, o Grizzly Bear subiu ao palco do Circo Voador , em mobilização realizada pelo Queremos , numa chuvosa terça-feira (05/02) de verão para mostrar por que é uma das bandas mais imprevisíveis e inventivas do rock atual. Com o show baseado no seu mais recente disco Shields , eleito o melhor disco de 2012 pelo Rock' n' Beats, o quarteto vai além das habituais referências do gênero e traduz perfeitamente [...]
Grizzly Bear 's Shields is a fantastic album. It's, in fact, so fantastic, that we decided it was the third best album to come out last year, which if you think about it is pretty remarkable. Part of the reason it was such a great album was the fact that it had some very, very good songs that stood alone individually. This seems silly, but there are plenty of good or great albums whose tracks don't really work alone. While the song from that album that [...]
Grizzly Bear has released a very unsettling video for "gun-shy" off of their 2012 effort Shields. In this video directed by Kris Moyes, the band is shown doing many things [...]
A melhor banda de 2012, segundo a nossa equipe, acaba de lançar clipe novo. Grizzly Bear liberou hoje o clipe de Gun-Shy faixa de Shields (2012) com uma fotografia digna de vimeo com tom laboratorial. Gun-Shy, é o segundo clipe de Shields e vem banhado por efeitos de repetições de frames em cima de ações do tempo e de experimentos médicos. Os efeitos repetitivos sincronizam perfeitamente com as batidas da música e os tais experimentos médicos são feitos nos próprios integrantes da banda. A direção [...]
As promised , here's the glitchy, bent new video for Grizzly Bear 's "Gun-Shy," rife with plenty of warped and sometimes unsettling, sometimes amazing imagery from director Kris Moyes . The post video: Grizzly Bear - "Gun-Shy" appeared first on Soft Signal .
Great video for Gun Shy from the album Shields !
[directed by Kris Moyes ]
I am a devoted Grizzly Bear fan and believe that their two previous releases ' Veckatimest' and 'Yellow House' are two of the most amazing indie folk albums ever made. It would be hard to deny that 'Shields' follows in their footstep. Daniel Droste and Ed Rossen still deliver those amazingly charming vocals, and the [...] The post Cougar Microbes Top Albums of 2012: Grizzly Bear - 'Shields' appeared first on Cougar Microbes .

Win our top 31 albums of 2012 ! (Read the original review ) I have always celebrated Grizzly Bear for their novel subtleties. Everything that they have ever washed their hands on has peaked on groundbreaking levels and Shields has proven no different. While this record is undoubtedly a natural progression, Grizzly Bear has proven to be full of surprises. With this album, they have mastered a unique blend of mellowed chamber pop and even hints of psychedelia, while still remaining [...]

This six-piece from Charleston, South Carolina does a mighty fine job of channeling the Beach Boys (with a hint of the Ruby Suns mixed in). They have a great "vintage California sound" that always seems to brighten up my day. ♩ The Explorers Club - Run Run Run [from Grand Hotel ] web // facebook // twitter // soundcloud // shows // iTunes It's been three years since Edward Droste and company [...]
Los muchachos de Grizzly Bear están inmersos por completo en el ambiente navideño y para contagiarnos un poco de su alegría en estas fiestas, nos regalan una inverosímil y extrañísima postal. En este video, de casi siete minutos de duración, la banda nos invita a regalar su álbum más reciente Shields , además de desearnos amor, paz y esperanza. Eso está bien, pero las imágenes que conforman este collage al parecer son completamente aleatorias y poco tienen qué ver con la Navidad: tacos, paisajes, parejas vacacionando, perros, pinturas al óleo y [...]
