A TAV Curator’s Pick.

2009 saw the release of Grizzly Bear's Veckatimest, which debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 and sold nearly half a million copies around the globe. This break-through album is now being made available for the first time on 180g, heavy-weight vinyl.

Veckatimest is the long-awaited follow-up to Grizzly Bear's critically acclaimed 2006 album, Yellow House and features contributions from neoclassical composer Nico Muhly and Beach House singer Victoria Legrand. There is an unbelievable clarity of sound and vision to Veckatimest; the shared vocals are sharper and more complex, arrangements are tighter, production is more adventurous and lyrics more affecting. Grizzly Bear was able to realize these 12 songs together as a band, making it their most collaboratively compositional album to date. – Press Release

“One of the year's most anticipated albums turns out to be worthy of the hype, as Grizzly Bear continue to expand their approach to lush chamber pop.” – Pitchfork

“Simplifying standout moments to tracks is a tough procedure, as ‘Veckatimest’ truly is best appreciated as a single body of work, so lovingly has it been stitched together, sequenced in a way that encourages the attentions to remain involved from beginning to end. But there’s no denying that ‘Fine For Now’ acts as something of a centrepiece, two or three songs playing out at once and climaxing in an explosion of colour; ‘Ready, Able’ could have even the coldest heart swooning to its titillating guitar chords and ethereal atmospherics; and ‘Foreground’, as album closer, is perhaps the most elegant song this band has yet committed to tape. Its simple beauty is impossible to accurately convey with critique words.” – Clash Music
