Hey kids, get your psychedelic folk-rock on with Grizzly Bear. Grizzly Bear is an indie/folk-rock band from my hometown, Brooklyn, New York. Grizzly just released their second album, Yellow House, to critical acclaim. (Critical Acclaim) On a Neck, On a Spit, is a favorite of mine off Yellow House. It's a six minute journey with peaks, valleys, and many shifts in gear that keep you riveted. From simple acoustic strumming to sped up folk rock On a Neck, On a Spit envelops the listener in sound. Bottom line, On a Neck, On a Spit is a great song, and Yellow House is a great record. Check out Grizzly Bear at The Bowery Ballrom in September. It's a can't miss.
