Veckatimest

Genre: Indie Rock

Much like Animal Collective earlier this year, Brooklyn’s experimental pastoral psych-folk outfit Grizzly Bear have been positioned as a sort of Great White Hope for indie rock in 2009 — a band that, several albums into its career, transcending the fanboy peripherary with an album so fully realized, it demands to be heard by a wider audience. Veckatimest’s opening tracks absolutely fulfill that promise: the swirling gypsy dazzle of ”Southern Point” and ”Two Weeks,” with its lush Beach Boy melodies and jaunty piano jangle, are intoxicating. If the less immediate second half brings diminishing returns, the early glow still lingers. B+
