Grizzly Bear - "While You Wait For The Others" live on Conan (video) and KCRW (MP3)



Grizzly Bear performed their newest song "While You Wait For The Others" on Late Night with Conan O'Brien last night (see above, from BV), and on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic at the end of February (listen below). Stereogum got so excited over the song they forgot to turn their listening notes into complete sentences: "Threads through to their love for old '60s pop in the harmonic feel, building off of the sort of dynamic avant folk they've been slinging of late, flooding the sepia of Yellow House with a lot more sunshine ... yeah, pretty fucking good."

Here at EAR FARM we'll just give it to you straight: "While You Wait For The Others" is Grizzly Bear through and through, which is to say it's also equal parts Donovan and Jimi Hendrix Blues and Phil Spector influence. The song would've fit in nicely with the rest of 2007's Friend [EP], yet it still offers hints at where Grizzly Bear is headed in the near future. I'm not sure I'd call it the greatest song the band has ever written... but that's simply proof of what manner of greatness I've come to expect from Ed, Christopher, Daniel, and Chris. Believe me you, the KCRW version posted below has already seen some rather heavy rotation here at EF HQ. And that performance on Conan, on a real TV turned up extra-loud? Goosebumps.

You can catch the band live in the coming months playing with Paul Simon and on tour with Radiohead.
