In celebration of the album’s 15th anniversary, Warp Records is reissuing Grizzly Bear’s sophomore album Yellow House. The album scaled through charts during its initial release, landing among the top ranks for albums on Pitchfork and The New York Times.
During the album’s initial release, Stereogum noted, “It’s one of those more timeless works, the ones that years down the line may linger and appear as if they could’ve come from any handful of eras at once.” Indeed, even 15 years after the band unveiled the album, it continues to hold a contemporary sound.
Sifting through Yellow House’s tracklist, the band touts an overwhelmingly broad sound, cusping listeners in their hands to bring forth an atmosphere that borders between experimental sound and folk-rock. The grandeur of each band member’s instrument in tandem with the unending layer of vocals through each song permeates from the past into the present, introducing a lively breath of uninhibited sound.
