First single "Three Rings" released today. Sounds like an evolution of their sound from their previous three records combined. I like this much better than the first one from Shields ("Sleeping Ute")

was never a completist fan of theirs before (liked the poppier tracks on Shields and thought Yellow House was a pleasant enough listen) but i rly like this

Yeah, this is really, really good.

Wow, yeah the new track is really nice, especially that last minute or so.

Did these guys leave Warp? Spotify says it was released by Grizzly Bear LLC

lol i forgot they were on Warp, what a weird fit

I'm kind of annoyed in retrospect that I felt even a drop of sympathy for them after that article about how even indie rock titans don't make much money. They might make a little more if they had the work ethic to create a little more output!

right? i would understand if they had kept up their solo projects (what was that one band? something Eagles), but for five years it's been mum, what've they been doing?

well the drummer did the music for High Maintenance

oh word. i like him. i like that his last name is Bear. i remember the only time i saw them (opening for TV on the Radio in 2006), they had a really strange stage setup, they were basically all in a straight-line like Kraftwerk. the drummer was right in front of me and they opened with this song that I've never been able to find on any of their records.

cool song, these guys still shred

Fuck yes. Based on this, I want to believe that the upcoming LP will be their greatest thus far.

Ok gonna go listen to it and stop knocking them.

The melody on this track that develops half way through... god damn.

It's a bit Radioheadish but I like.

Radiohead haven't been able to write a compelling melody in about 20 years. GB do it with ease.

new song was in one ear out the other woof

The Warp deal had just run its course, I gather.

Love the artwork on the album.

Damnit.

AMA is pretty interesting, CT says that his biggest influence as a producer/recording engineer is Jim O'Rourke, and that they were all obsessed with his Drag City records in the early days.

and that totally makes sense revisiting Yellow House right now.

Sad no one asked Ed about his Pokemon Go habit.

They pretty much opened every show with "Showcase" in 2006: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3p7mYshl5g

Getting a little concerned about this album.

i dig this song. i just wish they would put out more records. any band that takes 4-5 years in between records is gonna have an uphill battle

four cypresses is really interesting, almost atonal in some parts, a lot of long non-resolving phrases

"it's chaos but it works" indeed
