Grizzly Bear, Veckatimest

So, once upon a time on The Internet a guy talked a little shit about a band he didn’t even really listen to, then a member of the band named Ed reached out to the guy, and then Ed and the guy became Twitter friends, and then when the band had a sold-out show in Austin, Ed gave the guy tickets to the show, and the guy and his friend went, and then when the guy had to drive three hours to Denton in the pouring rain, he listened to this album, and he really liked it, and he even played it for his 5-month-old son, who liked it too, and now he’s saying to you, have you heard this 4-year-old record? It’s really good.
