Taking the Music Blog Zeitgeist #2 spot for Best Album, Grizzly Bear's Veckatimest deserves nothing less.
I am sure most of you have heard the hit single from Veckatimest called Two Weeks. The song is a mellifluous piece of art that isn't meant for rocking out, it is simply for listening. It'll stop you in your tracks and take control of your ears and mind.
You see, many of us don't take the time to JUST listen to music. We often multi-task while enjoying our favorite records but we never JUST enjoy our favorite records and it's something I believe we should do more of. Music is the key to our soul and we have to embrace that and incorporate into our lives.
So set aside a couple of minutes each day to simply listen to music and squeeze every melody, beat and rhythm out of it. If you have 53 minutes to spare, Veckatimest will not disappoint you on this journey, if you decide to take it.
