What Have You Been Listening To? (Don't make this thread a wall of embedded youtubes)
I don't know how this will fly on this forum, since so many of you dudes are too cool to listen to a lot of new releases. Still, it is worth a shot, with the sudden resurgence of music related threads. Also, this is new
new music, not just modern music, meaning we talk about music that got released this year. Links are welcome, too, if the mods are cool with that.
I'd like to start off with some heavy praise for the new Grizzly Bear record, Veckatimest. I've never really
gotten into a Griz album until this one, which I've been listening to constantly for the past couple days. I adored Knife, Easier, and Colorado off Yellow House but found myself getting kind of lost within some of it's murk on my first few listens. With this release, every song feels clearer and more filled out, and it inspired me to go back and listen to Yellow House again, which I'm starting to appreciate quite a bit more. Of course, the Griz are rocking their always incredible four-part vocal harmonies, which bring to mind Beach Boys' Pet Sounds and Panda Bear's Person Pitch.
