Biography

Grizzly Bear released Yellow House in 2006. It was a slow, steady and stunning ride, and given the album's otherworldly charm and staying power, it's hard to believe three years have gone by.

That might seem like a long time. But given Grizzly Bear's hectic touring schedule, including stints with Radiohead, TV On The Radio and Feist as well as several performances during a ... Read more in Amazon's Grizzly Bear Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Review

"Draped in soft loops and baggy net of acoustic guitars, ...unaffected, hypnotic animal that's more stoner Sebadoh than freaked-out Fahey." -- CMJ

"On 'Don't Ask (FInal Fantasy remix)'...think Iron & Wine covering 'Such Great Heights' 'cept in reverse" -- Pitchfork Media

"Shying away from the insincere nouveau-folk so common with lo-fi bands, Grizzly Bear embraces a more willowy, haunting sound." -- Nylon (For guys) Magazine

"The Grizz offer tender and creepy folk mantras that function as a Paxil substitute or antidote, depending on your disposition." -- Spin Magazine

Customer Reviews

Listen to them. all the time, always.

I can't wait to see these guys in concert- I hear the songs work even better live.
Jose Feliciano
I like their second album as well, but not as much...as this one.

Format: Audio CD
"Horn of Plenty" is an odd debut album for a band, since it was created before the band proper existed.

Instead, the first Grizzly Bear album is largely the efforts of Ed Droste, and he spreads himself over several genres -- freakfolk, pop, psychedelica and post-rock, layered together into gentle, hypnotic melodies. It's like sitting through a fuzzy, colourful dream and waking just in time for the remixes.

It opens with strange animal noises, and a reverberent hum... and a gentle guitar under a thin layer of murmuring keyboard. It sounds like someone doped Grandaddy. "I'm a deep sea diver with my fins/and underneath your current I do swim," Droste murmurs distantly. "I'm a deep sea diver losing air/and around here I'm sad swimming/you don't care..."

Things get slightly more upbeat in the gentle tripfolk of "Don't Ask" ("I fell into your arms that night/Don't ask"), before trickling into a series of fuzzy, gentle songs: exotic scratchy electropop, fluting indie-rock, ghostly ballads, lo-fi tunes that sound like they were recorded over a walkie-talkie, and shifting epics of shimmering freakfolk. It all finishes up with "This Song," a gentle guitar pop melody that may have a beat, but is as drowsy as a lullaby.

And this release has a second disc of remixed songs, which gives the mellow songs new twists -- jangling strings, a psychedelic reworking, funky dance beats, gentle electronic waves, maracas, grimy rock edges, carnival rock, hard techno, and what sounds like radio static. And these are all done by some brilliant artists -- Final Fantasy, Dntel, Ariel Pink, Efterklang, the Castanets, Alpha, Solex and Safety Scissors.

Grizzly Bear doesn't sound anything like its name would imply -- no rough edges, no rock, no wildness.

maybe I'm being suckered into the whole grizzly bear/mountain imagery concept, but their music does have a very rustic, log cabin meets 2004 feel. It's sort of hard to describe because it's not exactly like anything else I've heard, at times I hear echoes of nick drake mixed with galaxie 500, but there are distinctly modern elements at play as well. Many of the songs sound like they are on an old vinyl record, and the vocals range from subdued and scratchy to clean and crisp. I've never bothered to take the time to write a review on amazon, but this one I was interested to do so. As far as I can tell they are relatively unknown, but if this album can make it into enough hands I'm sure they will get a huge following, this music is catchy, sad, unique and just about everything right. forget the new folk scene, this is something in its own. at the moment there is only one other CD out with a similar *tone* and that's the new ariel pink, but this beats that album out ten fold----i highly recommend this. no joke.

this album grew on me a lot this year, so much so I went back and got the remixes which are also strong, but personally I find the originals far more captivating. interestingly ignored by many, this album is a slow burner of quiet but haunting and gorgeous songs. definitely needs close listening before it's subtle beauty reveals itself.

I heard this CD on a whim through a friend of mine a few weeks ago and got my hands on a copy before it was released and I must say it has evolved into one of my favorite CDs of the year. It's very much a lo fi affair but in a new way that seems not only sincere but also innovative. It kinda sounds to me like everything is filtered through a dark dream, the mood is at times sad but the music is consistently beautiful. i think they benefit most from the impressive vocal layering. i highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys such other new folk type bands like iron and wine and animal collective as well as fans of older stuff as the review said syd barret comes to mind ....it definitely straddles a fine line between vintage and modern. it gets five stars because after three weeks of listening to it, it's still in my Cd player and I don't appear to be getting sick of it anytime soon...

I bought this album based on a review that compared them to Syd Barett and Skip Spence, and cautiously/skeptically took a listen. While a lot of moments on this album do have an older psycheldelic vibe, there are definite newer influences here as well. Honestly, I find this particular mixture of new meets old, not to be a rehash, but in this instance, quite fresh and interesting. I certainly haven't heard a lot of the effects/noises I hear in here before, and while some might say it's just pointless experimentation, they all seem deliberate and well crafted. There is a lilting, slow, mournful flow to this album that is haunting in the most beautiful way, with lyrics that float in and out of your conscienceness, and as the reviewer said, enunciation isn't this band's strength, but when you do catch the lyrics they are lovely and sincere...I don't highly recommend a lot of random "new folk" artists, but this one has really captured my attention. Well worth the chance buy. I've already gotten 2 copies for friends. Hope to see them live soon. A+++

Wow. I bought 'Horn of Plenty' on a whim the other day, after I noticed write-ups about this just recently formed NYC trio of bears in almost every other local New York publication and heard people talk about it at a bunch of parties. Grizzly Bear has become my new, grey day, mellow winter album; I've listened to it on repeat on my iPod for two days straight. There are serious concoctions of dark sounds that put you in your own world for the duration of the album, but almost every song is seriously catchy. 'Frolic' and 'My Duchess Anne' have already made it into my 100 Most Played Section. I can't wait for more to come.
