Grizzly bears could do better

The new one by Grizzly Bear is "Shields" and it's on Warp Records and it's one of the worst albums of the year. Imagine four people from four different bands wearing headphones, practicing away on four different songs.

This one is so completely dysfunctional, so totally lacking in any sort of musicality or hooks and the vocals are just flat weird on songs that really suck. Remember the Grizzly Man who was gonna kick it with the grizzlies in Alaska and it was all growly feelie right up until they ate him? If he had been playing this stuff on his WalkMan, they would've munched him in half the time.
