Grizzlies in Brooklyn

appropriateIs Brooklyn going to be the Brit School of America? Are we going to get bored? Not if you compare Vampire Weekend, MGMT or Beirut with Leona Lewis, The Feeling or The bloody Kooks.

Its all gone topsy-turvy. Brooklyn is producing great British music. The Brit School is churning out American dross.

They sound like a great British band, but Grizzly Bear come from, yes, Brooklyn. Radiohead love them and so do I. They have three EP/Albums out, with Yellow House and Friend both receiving critical acclaim.

Listen to He Hit Me (and it felt like a kiss), for interest, 60s girl group The Crystals made the original. Released in 2006, Knife is an older, but oh so fantastic, song. Super trippy video too:
