Bear Hug

Somehow, I sort of missed out on the whole Grizzly Bear craze. Maybe it's the rock I've been living under for the past several months, or all that sand I've had my head buried in recently? Really gotta knock that off...I mean, yeah I heard they slayed at SxSW etc etc, but I guess I just sort of brushed them off as having a cool name that I wish I had cornered first.



Which is why I feel a little stupid admitting how obsessed I am with this song/video. Because it's totally amazing, right? Yeeeeeah, ok, I get it now guys...

i love how their face starts of just a little bit shiny then they get that little grin, then it turns to full blown simle and their heads start exploding like fireworks, i swear that is exactly how i felt when i first listened to 'knife', i'm glad you like them too

Amazing video. I probably prefer the video to the song. But both are spiffy.

I've been on this bandwagon for probably far too long. But I saw the video a couple of days ago and now I have been secretly rewatching it on the regular on my phone. Something about those untimely, mismatched blinks is just too perfect.

Dan's been into them slightly, it's convenient to have a d00d who can sweet-tune scope for you (you understand)

ANYWAYS I had to comment on this post mostly to say that among the many valuable lessons I learn from hanging out with grade schoolers all day is that "grizzly bear" is modern slang for shitting your pants. Just p.s.f.y.i., you know.


It's good though!

Oh wow! I was obsessed with Yellow House a year and half ago, and when Grizzly Bear recently started getting all this attention I was like yeah, sure, I know, but I never listened to their new album. This is perfect!
