Considering Grizzly Bear is one of my favorite bands, seeing them at the
Walt Disney Concert hall is one of my favorite moments ever, and the artwork
for "Yellow House" is one of the most beautifully photographed packages I
have ever seen, my standards are pretty high for this wonderful band; So why
on earth did they just plop this all-caps condensed white type on this mildly
cool/a little pointless drawing and call it a day? The name "Veckatimest" sounds
a little mars volta to me, but pitchfork assured me as they like to do, that it is
the name of a uninhabited island near Massachusetts....which is very GB if you ask
I'm not at all worried about the record as both their new songs and singer Daniel
Rossen's "Department of Eagles" record was one of my faves from last year,
but this art work is a little off putting....Although Victoria Legrand of
the Beach house (another fave) appears...adding to my comfort.
So all in all it should be grand....just
RESOLVE THAT TYPOGRAPHY DAMNIT!
