Episode Summary

Grizzly Bear
The K West hotel in Shepherds Bush has played host to many Black Cab performers of late. My Morning Jacket, Martha Wainwright and Death Cab For Cutie have all been made to wait in the lobby while we try and hail a cab outside for hours on end. And for this weeks performer, it was no different. Grizzly Bear are made up of four extremely gentle and friendly chaps who couldn't have been more accommodating to us. After a full morning of interviews, Ed, Daniel, Chris and Bear welcomed us, excited at the prospect of not having to answer any more journalists' questions. After gathering their instruments, the four of them disappeared into a small room to rehearse their chosen song, the brilliant 'All We Ask' taken from their latest album 'Veckatimest' (reviewed in this weeks Knowledge). Minutes later, six of us of bundled into the waiting cab, which drove us around the backstreets of White City and beyond. Grizzly Bear dealt with the potholes and white van drivers brilliantly to deliver a spotless performance which confirms the buzz surrounding them  beautifully textured vocals that compliment Daniels unique guitar progressions to create an eerie, yet fantastic session. Thank you K West hotel, youve given us another great performance, who will it be next?moreless
