i had to spell it like that on the top, i'm so sorry. i had to do it.
everyone wants to cover grizzly bear's KNIFE. everyone. i was confused as to why it was so widely adored. THEN I LISTENED TO IT. i must say 'holy shit, i am an idiot.' seriously, it is awesome.
if you have not heard it, you should get on that:
KNIFE --- GRIZZLY BEAR
it's so haunting. jesus.
here are some covers:
BY BORN RUFFIANS
BY ZACH CONDON WHILE INTOXICATED
and here it is by the band themselves for LA BLOGOTHEQUE.
for good measure, seriously one of the most awesome things i have ever heard:
TOO LITTLE TOO LATE (JOJO COVER) --- DAN ROSSEN OF GRIZZLY BEAR.
best part: this sounds like a legitimate song, except when dan says "i don't stand a chance with a player like you." the rest of it could have legitimately been released by grizzly bear on an actual record. this makes the fact that it is a jojo cover even more incredible.
i would like to see grizzly bear in an opera house in brooklyn with the brooklyn philharmonic orchestra this february. how incredible would that be.
