Veckatimest (/vɛkəˈtɪmɪst/) is the third studio album by the American indie rock band Grizzly Bear, released on May 26, 2009, on Warp Records. The album is named after Veckatimest Island, a small island in Dukes County, Massachusetts. Produced by bassist and t Chris Taylor, the album entered the US Billboard 200 at selling 33,000 copies in its first week of release. By September 2012, the album had sold around 220,000 copies in the US. In 2010.

Veckatimest ain't perfect; lord knows it tries. More than most any album in recent memory not named Chinese Democracy (please keep reading), it is compositionally and sonically airtight, every moment sounding tweaked, labored over. Perfection- and the pursuit thereof- has its price, and in less able hands (with all love to Axl), this obsessive attention to craft and execution could lead to something dull. 2007's Friend EP had me worried that Grizzly Bear's insistence on having everything in its right place had forced formula onto what had seemed to that point freewheeling and free-associative. For every inspired moment on Friend, there was another that fell back on the tried-but-true: a quiet intro bleeding into a big, harmonic midsection followed by an eventual denouement.

VECKATIMEST: The album that really helped Grizzly Bear explode. Dory" brings in some fish-based romance and delicacy, and "Ready, Able" takes a waltz time signature for a lovely, spinning turn. I Live With You" continues to play with loud-soft dynamics as it swells with a soft chorus in the background and occasional string builds before "Foreground" takes the album out on a moody note. But it's the Beach Boys-like sunniness of "Two Weeks" that really put them on the map and garnered them plenty of attention.

Listen free to Grizzly Bear – Veckatimest (Southern Point, Two Weeks and more). Veckatimest is the third full-length studio album by American indie rock band Grizzly Bear, released on May 26, 2009 on Warp Records. The album is named after a small island in Dukes County, Massachusetts. Veckatimest debuted at on the US Billboard 200, selling 33,000 copies in its first week of release. It has sold around 220,000 copies until September of 2012. The recording of Veckatimest began in the summer of 2008 at Allaire Studios in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York.

If Grizzly Bear’s second album, Yellow House, defined their baroque indie-folk sound, Veckatimest polished it until it gleamed. With its youth choirs ("Cheerleader") and string quartets ("Southern Point," arranged by composer Nico Muhly), the album is an exercise in detail-obsessive and a little dark but still amazingly pop-minded, like The Beach Boys had they been raised on Grimm’s Fairy Tales instead of the sunny California coast. If Grizzly Bear’s second album, Yellow House, defined their baroque indie-folk sound, Veckatimest polished it until it gleamed.

Grizzly Bear is ranked number 201 in the overall artist rankings with a total rank score of 15,472. Members who like this artist also like: Fleet Foxes, Tame Impala and Animal Collective.
