    Issued in late 2007, FRIEND is the follow-up to Grizzly Bear's lauded YELLOW HOUSE, and features reworked versions of tracks from that album and its predecessor, HORN OF PLENTY, by both the Brooklyn-based group and other indie acts. The quartet is joined by Beirut's Zach Condon and the Dirty Projectors on a restless new rendition of "Alligator," while Atlas Sound (aka Deerhunter's Bradford Cox) contributes a mesmerizing minimalist take on "Knife." Other standout tracks on the collection are Grizzly Bear's haunting, echo-laden cover of the Gerry Goffin/Carole King pop standard "He Hit Me" and Band of Horses' harmony-heavy rendition of "Plans." For those who fell under the strange rootsy/glitchy spell of YELLOW HOUSE, FRIEND serves as a beautifully woozy after-effect.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (p.132) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Grizzly Bear offer a rocked-out remake of their own 'Little Brother,' and a home recording of the folkie standard 'Deep Blue Sea.'"
    CMJ - "The Grizzly Bear gang has an atypical affinity for anti-robotic but still electronic elementals as well as the traditional rock band line-up..."
    Harp (magazine) (p.102) - "Grizzly Bear's penchant for the sonically fragile and precise makes for a captivating record."
