Efterklang & Grizzly Bear


These guys are currently on tour together in Scandanavia. The Copenhagen 10 piece Efterklang makes some of the prettiest orchestral-glitch that I've heard in a while. I guess it just helps being farther north...

PS: Efterklang has also been featured on the TV. Their poppiest tune, "Step Aside," was on The O.C. Who says the world isn't getting better every day.

Grizzly Bear is a stripped down indie-folk group from Brooklyn, but I am more partial to the all-remix version of their album Horn Of Plenty. This is a jumpy and eccentric number taken from that album, remixed by Simon Bookish.

    Agreed on the Grizzly Bear...I'm more into this remix than the album traxx I've heard. I'm on the fence about the OC's deep, wide reach into the indie creme de la creme...I know we're not supposed to care about selling out anymore, but the OC, whatever you think of it, just doesn't deserve a good indie soundtrack. Maybe The Office or other good shows with real characters, like the Biggest Loser or PBS NewsHour.

    Yes, there was a biy of sarcasm in my statement about the O.C. - bringing great music to a crapp-o show like the O.C. is basically putting lipstick on a pig, plus the music is cheapened by association. Too bad they don't hire some of the same sort of people that make these records to make the shows...
