Two new releases today, and they pair quite nicely with the big wind gusts and impending all-night storm. Both are coming to Boston (Grizzly Bear on Saturday, Menomena next month) – can’t wait to do this all live.
Grizzly Bear: Shields. Flits between raw, lovely, and listenable with a hint of roughed-up Belle and Sebastian.
Menomena: Moms. Just might like their other albums better but it’s too soon to tell. They’ve got these sleeper hits that get their hooks into you a little deeper with each listen.
