Grizzly Bear
Excuse the abstract image but i’ve already posted about this album in March which featured Cheerleader so I thought something a little different might be a good change of pace because every blog has been writing about this Brooklyn band. I still haven’t dove into this album completely because of DEMF but if I heard Ready, Able I wouldn’t of posted Cheerleader or Two Weeks. Ready, Able has a slow waltz and Eddie sounds abit like Benoit Pioulard to me, you see now that’s a duet I wanna hear in 2009.

One of the best voices i’ve heard live since i’ve moved to Brooklyn is a no brainer, 24 year old, Danish, Greek and Indonesian Jannis Noya Makrigiannis gave me goosebumps. He stayed at my place for about a week, one of the nicest guys, dressed like a southern European Italian Vogue farmer and right off the bat you could tell the guy had a kind heart and when he performed he looked like he was made to perform music and sing.

Nothing wrong with just throwing in a random Sonic Youth song to ground us.

Okay so i’ve become a Dubstep junkie, don’t tell anyone. I’ve looked high and low for the most energetic yet slow moving and heavy hitting tracks. I really think this might take over the US finally in 2010. This Joker cut has elements of a Top 40 rap anthem but its soo chunky, 8 bit, and twisted, i’m sure my neighbors love it too.

Grizzly Bear – Ready, Able


Choir Of Young Believers – Action/Reaction


Sonic Youth – The Sprawl


Joker – Solid State

Yes. That’s a solid post. Props for the Sonic Youth song. I am seeing them live next month. I saw them live last year and it was one of the best sets that I have ever witnessed live.

You should check out Tunnidge if you want some slow and heavy dubstep.

Great post, I was meaning to get some Choir of Young Believers but then forgot about them. Thanks for reminding me.

Just saw Grizzly Bear here in Vancouver, great show. Two days earlier saw Animal Collective at the same venue. As you can see, its been a great start to summer here in Van.
