Dear God, No
 
Should we expect an auto-tuned, dancier side project from the Grizzly Bear camp?

TheProsAndCons 05/18/10 07:07 PM

Dear god, yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! YES!

If anyone was to do it, it would be them. But with that being said, I hope they stick with just doing Grizzly Bear. I need more Grizzly Bear ASAP and they are too good to do something along the lines of that.

danielineffigy 05/18/10 07:12 PM

Sure, why not.

Who cares.
We still got Grizzly Bear.

Jeff_Ryan 05/18/10 07:23 PM

it could be cool. they're good musicians so this could end up being good. as long as it doesn't stop them from being Grizzly Bear i'm cool with it

TJ Wells 05/18/10 07:26 PM

I'd like to put the words SIDE PROJECT in bold and caps because apparently people are morons.

So true : I officially declare that Grizzly Bear is unfit to hold the banner of labels like Indie, Experimental, Deep and Pretentious. It just doesn't work anymore.

flask 05/18/10 07:30 PM

hipsters and their auto tune

Auto-tune use to be something that took talent from the producer.

Now it's a filter.

It's a weapon that I believe in the right hands can still be used for good though.

Exactly. People too often automatically associate Auto-tune with all the crap that comes out these days.

It's kind of gone the way of the "guitar solo."

Not interested.

KingsCrossing 05/18/10 08:10 PM

Yeah, I don't think this band could get any worse.

i have to agree with you. my roommate and i both couldn't make it more than a few songs into their album without turning it off from sheer boredom. i wouldn't normally post here just to complain about them, but i feel like you need some moral support due to the outraged hipsters about to come at you, haha

HometownHero 05/18/10 08:32 PM

Guy from Vampire Weekend was in Discovery and they use auto tune and it is awesome. No problem here.

Color Morale 05/18/10 08:35 PM

shud probly be rly good

didwhat77times 05/18/10 08:37 PM

I want Grizzly Bear to stay Grizzly Bear, but as a side project "Samantha" sounds like it could be cool, I'd give it a chance.

JordanBuell 05/18/10 08:46 PM

ill listen to it. it could be fun

Haha thanks for the moral support. I feel the same way towards them. They're obviously not even close to the worst band out there, but I just get bored listening. And I do enjoy a lot of other hyped hipster shit, but they just don't do it for me.

This. I love hipster dance music. Look at my avatar for instance.

I also love Grizzly Bear.

Kid B 05/18/10 09:19 PM

Heh, I like the idea of a project called Samantha. I don't know why.

eatthemsnails 05/18/10 09:22 PM

hahaha, i would listen to it fo sho.

lbopm 05/18/10 09:44 PM

i agree

Gumbyjag 05/19/10 12:32 AM

will probably be good.

HometownHero 05/19/10 12:55 AM

Also the news title is stupid

bunneh. 05/19/10 01:21 AM

Why are opinions slipping into news titles? Whatever, it's cool to shit all over something before anything even begins to culminate.

introduction 05/19/10 02:37 AM

because every band needs one.

Sarcasm 05/19/10 03:55 AM

I wouldn't mind that.

They're definitely not bad, but certainly a tad boring. Veckatimest was solid overall, but if I listen at work, it makes me sleepy.

thesollopsist 05/19/10 08:42 AM

Still can't get into Veckatimest, oh well.

tyramail 05/19/10 09:39 AM

i'd probably listen.

Say Nothing 05/19/10 11:03 AM

Let's hear it

makeoutmags 05/19/10 12:20 PM

Seconded. They're a band I want to like, but just can't get into...had the same struggle with Fleet Foxes too

craigboliver 05/19/10 05:18 PM

not surprised, they are trendy and hip enough

luvsickcatalyst 05/19/10 06:52 PM

The only artists that have used autotune in a creative way are Imogen Heap and Bon Iver. I'm not a big fan of these guys, so I can't say how I'll feel about this side project.

Exactly my feelings on them. They're not bad by any means, just a tad dull.

Bananasaur 05/19/10 08:45 PM

Well, I think Bon Iver used a vocoder/autotune to amazing results!

I'm a total Grizz fan girl. I think everything they touch is gold. And I am definitely interested in Samantha, lol. That being said I always thought it was a joke between Ed & Chris Bear and they never actually had any songs, but I'd love to hear some!
