i feel like their music is very experimental, two weeks aside, and yet people are really lapping it up. it's cool, but i'm just not sure how they rose to so much hype. ???

They opened for Radiohead.

but I feel the same way about Radiohead though.

opening for radiohead alone doesn't necessarily get you all of this
and i disagree, radioheads first three releases were extremely listenable/pop format/accessible
they still work within the pop format a lot, whereas grizzly bear seems to branch out more in terms of structure, at least, overall.

It's pretty awesome that more lotteries are doing some sort of music promotion. In Minnesota, there's this scratch off ticket promotion called Cash & Concerts where not only can you win money but also music downloads and free concert tix! Hope more states start doing music related lottery promos!
