Super innovative and complicated enough to make it better and better each listen.

Having heard great things about this album I was excited to check it out, unfortunately I came away disappointed. I just could not get into it .Maybe I need to have another listen or 2 ? I really like Shields and their 2017 release Painted Ruins & recommend both albums.

One of the tightest albums I've listened to. Splendid production.

This album is totally exuberant; pitting together Baroque, Psych Folk and Chamber Pop to create something of complete beauty. It took me awhile to come around on it but now I'm obsessed with it.

The follow up to, yellow house, veckatimest, is another brilliantly inventive Grizzly Bear album. Similar in style and execution, it boasts some fine tracks. Two weeks, dory, and, while you wait for the others. Grizzly Bear are one the most interesting acts of the millennium and, veckatimest, is a fine album.

Such a strange album. These guys are really original, which is cool, but their music is just too weird for me. Two Weeks is a fantastic song, and Southern Point is good too, but other than that it's a bunch of average songs.

Definitely their best work. The dynamic between the voices it's wonderful.

Veckatimest sounds like some kind of antediluvian doctoral occupation, but it's actually the name of a small island off the coast of Massachusetts. I think that's fitting. Veckatimest, that is the album, feels very much like a lonely, magical little island. Secret fantasies in lonely woods.
