Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Horn of Plenty is a nostalgic amalgamation of found sounds and layered vocals bound to thrill followers of Animal Collective, Sufjan Stevens, Nick Drake and the Unicorns. While the album pushes the boundaries of mellow into undiscovered territory, Grizzly Bear is not sure if they fall under the newly coined "freak-folk" category or hte new-folk genre, but they'd like to offer up wood-temp or cave-core. V Magazine likened them to Neil Young on cough syrup.

Review

"Grizzly Bear produces dreamy vocals and pillowy, guitar-driven effects that evoke Neil Young on cough syrup." -- V Magazine

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.

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.
