Daily Rotation: Grizzly Bear's "Ready, Able" & "Two Weeks"

22 Dec

As we reflect on the dopest records of 2009, I have to show my love for Grizzly Bear’s third studio length album Veckatimest.

“Ready, Able,” features the Brooklyn Youth Chorus! Here’s the stop motion wonder video for “Ready, Able”:

And the explosive video for ‘Two Weeks”:

Some lovin’ words from the HOVA himself, Jay-Z:

“The thing I want to say to everyone — I hope this happens because it will push rap, it will push hip-hop to go even further — what the indie-rock movement is doing right now is very inspiring. It felt like us in the beginning. These concerts, they’re not on the radio, no one hears about them, and there’s 12,000 people in attendance. And the music that they’re making and the connection they’re making to people is really inspiring. So, I hope that they have a run where they push hip-hop back a little bit, so it will force hip-hop to fight to make better music, because it can happen, because that’s what rap did to rock.”
