Grizzly Bear release Painted Ruins, their first album in five years: Stream

on August 17, 2017, 11:10pm

Tonight, Grizzly Bear return with Painted Ruins, their first record since taking a sabbatical after the massive tour behind 2012’s excellent Shields. Always a band that’s functioned as a democracy, Painted Ruins sees Grizzly Bear taking that spirit of symbiosis even further, as the Brooklyn foursome meld together for what our David Sackllah called “a seamlessly flowing acrobatic waltz” in his review of the album.

A great example of that collaborative ethos can be seen in bassist Chris Taylor’s taking a more significant songwriting role this time around—something that can be can be heard in both his dramatic bass playing on “Mourning Sound” and  the Taylor-penned “Systole”, which features the bassist’s ever lead vocal. The tracks Grizzly Bear shared ahead of Painted Ruins’ release, “Four Cypresses”, “Neighbors”, “Three Rings” and “Mourning Sound”, showed a confident, patient band at the height of their powers, and that sense of self-assuredness and comfort permeates the entirety of the record, reasserting the notion of Grizzly Bear as one of rock’s finest bands.
