A nice second album,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shields (Audio CD)
I loved the sound of Grizzly Bear's first album, Veckatimest, the laid back drawled vocals and stop start, gently plucked guitars were a very nice combo.
Shields picks up where the first album left off and shows a band very much progressing along a musical vector. The sound is more refined and, although the tracks don't immediately jump out they are very rich and evocative. The vocals sound as if they were sung in a wooden village hall and they soar and glide beautifully.
The instrumentation is lovely, you can hear the plucking fingers on string, fretboards. Some people hate the sound of the players contacting the instruments but here it adds atmosphere and conviction.
For loves of Bella union type music this is a must have.
