What we said:
On paper, even attempting to match the genius of Veckatimest looked like an unsurmountable task. Happily, Grizzly Bear made light work of it on their magnificent fourth album. Whether they were showcasing those trademark tricksy time-signatures on ‘Sleeping Ute’, their tumbling guitar licks on ‘Half Gate’ or an aptitude for beatific piano-pop on ‘A Simple Answer’, on Shields the Brooklyn boys delivered melody in spades.
