Grizzly Bear - On a Neck, On a Spit

Okay, I'll admit that I stole this from Pitchfork after reading their review of this song, having giving it only 2.5 stars. However, I can't disagree with them enough. I saw them in concert last week and they performed this as their closing song, and I left thinking I needed to hear that song again. And now I have. Yay.
"On a Neck, On a Spit," is more like two songs mixed together; it begins with their trademark atmospheric folk before bending into one of the most traditional folk songs I've heard them make. With the full band, there sound is definitely changing, blurring the boundaries between more traditional folk and post-rock, giving them a much fuller and experimental sound.
I've also included an optimal cover of Yes' 'Owner of a Broken Heart' that appears on their upcoming Demos EP being released shortly.

I think it sounds pretty sweet. I uploaded the MP3 to SaveFile to save people some time downloading it.

Of course, if SaveFile happens to be acting up just head over to and grab it there instead.
