Rawr. New Grizzly Bear track. It’s distinguishable among others, so we hired a tracker to find out what this means exactly; where the bear is headed, and what it has to do with us. Left Hand Bull, otherwise known as Stereogum, couldn’t tell us much other than the bears upcoming album release date (9/16 Warp Records), and plans for a world tour. What we can discern from the scent is a strong, unexpected complexity, something more than nuts and berries, Grizzly Bears’s usual diet.

I hope that was less annoying to read than it was to write.
