Finally a better and more promising sound from the Grizzlies. It’s a bit more corporate, more muscular, definitely radio-friendlier than earlier lo-fi folk-pastoral experimentations. Here they soar, with the lilting chorus of ambient oohs and aahs harmonically jazzing up Ed Droste’s honeyed lead and Chris Bear’s drum rolls. You’d wish “maybe someday” they’ll do more of this but then, wouldn’t that be such a genuine bore? For now, let’s just play this again and again, until the sparks fly and our heads be set on fire.
