Grizzly Bear - Two Weeks

Brooklyn-based indie rock band, Grizzly Bear, began as a home recording project. Music experimentalist, Edward Droste, holed himself up for 15 months in his Greenpoint, Brooklyn, apartment and recorded on a small hand-held tape recorder Multi-instrumentalist, Christopher Bear, added additional instrumentation and vocals to Droste's stripped-down sonic blueprints.

The album, Horn of Plenty, we supposed to be just for friend but eventually circulated through New York's underground music scene. It was released as a full album in 2004, but did not gain success until the band toured extensively. Since then, their popularity has grown with new releases and releases of older Droste recording.

Two Weeks is off their 2009 release Veckatimest (named after a small island off Massachusetts)
