I’d imagine if we hadn’t moved on quite a few decades Grizzly Bear would be one of the most outstanding barbershop quartets in all of Brooklyn. So much of their majesty hangs from their use of intricate melody yet they gain the upperhand on their music free ancestors through the liberal use of inspirational instrumentation. You probably well know by now that the bands second album ‘Yellow House’ is one of 2006’s finest but I’ve got admit its taken me the best part of the autumn/winter to appreciate how good it is. ‘The Knife’ and ‘Easier’ are ready classics but there are plenty of other titillations to be savoured throughout. Like ‘On A Neck, On A Spit’ with its bag of quirky twists and turns. Noteworthy for the clear distillation towards the finale it thrills throughout by its sheer sense of eclecticism. It’ll all come full circle as you hear it bump and grind in the background as your hair gets reshaped. KD
