Grizzly Bear began in 2004 as a bedroom recording project for Massachusetts native Ed Droste. His early songs were mostly trippy, atmospheric and roughly sketched soundscapes, but by 2006, Grizzly Bear had evolved into a full band and released the slightly more polished album Yellow House. The group's 2009 breakthrough, Veckatimist, and the new Shields are both richly layered productions with gorgeous, soaring harmonies and artful melodies and rhythms.
