The new record from Grizzly Bear member Daniel Rossen and long time musical collaborator Fred Nicolaus reminds me of one of Eicher's records. It's sparse arrangements coupled with dense harmonies and often-shambolic rhythms, brings to mind early Ralph Towner records. The chord structures used here are certainly not the generic ones found on most pop records, as with Grizzly Bear's Yellow House, chords are often realized beyond their mere 3 note applications and extend into the upper regions of the chord's implied harmony (extended 7th's and 9th's). The vocals are recorded in such a way that separating them from the music is impossible. They almost function as an instrument, that's not to detract from the lyrical content, but instead, enhances the experience by placing you as a listener right there with them throughout the whole record.
Discussing the lyrical content of this record would probably be a disservice, mostly because it really does transcend words for the most part.Read more ›
Taking stylistic note from Van Dyke Parks' production sound, the album sounds cinematic and dreamy as most songs are coated with a gauzy film. "No One Does It Like You" is a strong contender for stand out track because of the catchy 60's melody prominently displayed in a glorious wall of sound. "Teenagers" sounds like a long lost 78 with its circus-like melody and handclapped percussion. "Floating on the Lehigh" has a tide like melody it ebbs and recedes. `In Ear Park' is an album that rewards again and again.

Some of the best music to come out in recent years. The album gives off an outdoorsy vibe. As if the songs take you on a hike through the woods.Published 21 months ago by Anthony J. Lowry
