After Grizzly Bear unveiled their latest song on David Letterman last night, internet dwellers have been on a mad quest to find some kind of streaming video online… and that includes the band themselves. So far YouTube and the other outlets have failed to provide, but this morning an mp3 of the performance has cropped up on forums, blogs, and a myspace bulletin from the band. “Two Weeks”, the second so-far-unreleased song they’ve revealed in the past few months, certainly delivers some “sunnier, poppier” sounds as promised. Beautiful stuff. I don’t know if I’m willing to say it’s as excellent as “While You Wait for the Others”, but it’s not far off.
I really enjoyed Yellow House and Friend, but these new songs are somehow reaching new heights. I’d say the anticipation for the next record is just about at a fever pitch, guys… unveil another track and the internet may explode.
UPDATE: Video footage is now available.
