Free Music Sunday: Grizzly Bear – While You Wait For The Others

Some people have the crazy idea that I reflexively don’t like popular music.  What they miss is that I couldn’t care less what music is or is not popular.  It just so happens that most of the chart-toppers… well… they kinda suck.

But this isn’t always the case!  So now allow me to present Grizzly Bear.  In the small pond of indie rock, these guys are pretty big fish.  A few weeks ago, their highly anticipated new album, Veckatimest, debuted at #8 in the Billboard charts.  One of the early tracks that stoked the buzz was “While You Wait For The Others.”  Like Grizzy Bear’s other material, it has an ethereal sound accompanied by harmonized vocals.  What sets it apart, is that it’s a pop song at heart and is perhaps more accessible than some of their other material.

This live version was in circulation well before the album came out.  It’s pretty faithful to the final studio cut, and is plenty delightful.  Download from Stereogum and enjoy!
