I like these guys. I haven't heard more than about 5 or 6 songs, though. An album of theirs is in order, I think. One of my favorite homosexual artists along with Owen Pallett.

They're pretty cool from what I've heard, which isn't that much.

I don't see what all the fuss is about with them. All the blogs have loved them up this year and ended up in most's top 10. Insound has sold a ton of copies. But why? It's all quite pretty and in parts dramatic, but top 10 of the year?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

How did I miss this thread? Grizzly Bear is one of my favorite bands of '06

Yellow House is great and Horn of Plenty is almost as good

Live they are pretty good too...the songs feel very different from the record. Has anyone else caught them yet on this tour? I saw them and it seemed like a lot of people were there just because it was the place to be that night, not because they actually like them. I mean I drove 3 hours to get there, so that kinda bugged me but whatever...it was still a good show.

I still like Yellow House but god...

I saw them live and they were HORRIBLE

the singer had this annoying reverb on the entire show, they didnt go on till midnight, they just sorta dumbed down all their songs, at least the show let me discover The Dirty Projectors (whose set was mindblowing btw)

You thought they were horrible? I liked them live, I think they stripped the songs down, not "dumbed them down." They sort of felt like that is what the songs would have sounded like had they been on Horn of Plenty...

Oh and on the topic of the Dirty Projectors, I thought they were good...except I missed half the performance since i needed to move my car since i was parked illegally. Oops

^perhaps horrible was a bit much

but for a lack of a better word they sounded nu-metal. Yellow House is lively and organic and wierd. It sounded so logical and droning and masculine and predictable. Idk, I was very high and it was almost 1 in the morning.

They're my friend's favourite band so him and I went to see them live, and they were simply stunning. I finally downloaded Yellow House and holy ****, it's ridiculously good. SO many of the songs send chills down my spine.

EDIT: Damn those harmonies, sooooooooo good.

They blow me up.
Yellow House is one of my favorite, and their 'Sorry For The Delay (The Early Recordings)' album is so ridiculously good. They're coming out with a new EP in the next couple months, I think it's called 'Friend'.

listening to "yellow house" in the summer makes it sound like a totally different album. there was always something i thought it was missing though, hopefully the new album will fix that.

very interested to see how the new album is. yellow house is pretty great. apparantly it is going to be more vibrant and 60's pop influenced.

i don't think you're disrespecting them by downloading the leak.. only if you download and don't buy the record..

also, i seem to remember that it was them who upload an AC track or something and got **** from websheriff or something like that, so it seems that they aren't really opposed to that
