The Artist: Maybe the fanciest members of Brooklyn’s ‘freak-folk’ scene.

Their Latest Release: Veckatimest (Warp, 2009)

The Set in a Few Sentences: Few bands could hold the attention of 20,000 or so P4Kers as Wayne Coyne and the Flaming Lips test-launched their confetti guns, but Grizzly Bear managed to keep eyes and ears locked on the Connector stage for almost an hour of inventive and layered–if a little lethargic–electro-folk.

And a Letter Grade: B+

In Case You Missed It: “Little Brother (Electric)”
