EDITORS’ NOTES

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.
