About this album

Yellow House is the second studio album by American indie rock band Grizzly Bear, released on September 5, 2006 on Warp Records. Produced by bass guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Chris Taylor, the album’s title refers to vocalist Ed Droste’s mother’s house where the majority of recording took place. The album is the first to feature both Taylor and vocalist and guitarist Daniel Rossen, and received critical acclaim upon its release; significantly increasing the band’s exposure. An EP, Friend, was released the following year featuring material recorded mostly during the same sessions. Following the release of Horn of Plenty in 2004, Grizzly Bear expanded from being the solo moniker for vocalist Ed Droste into a full band, with the addition of Horn of Plenty collaborator Christopher Bear, bassist and multi-instrumentalist Chris Taylor, and guitarist and vocalist Daniel Rossen. Christopher Bear noted, “Getting together the band for the live show changed things quite a bit, in terms of dynamics and instrumentation used. The songs were quite simple and open ended so it left a lot of room for interpretation, which was great because it allowed us to get a band sound happening and working on a very reactionary level.”

    Still best by far. Wish more of this etheral quality was still in their music, but i suppose you can't keep doing the sane thing forever.

    this record demonstrates just how important capturing a "vibe" in recording is. you can hear the house in every track.

    I think this is their best work. Veckatimest was very accessible and a bit overrated, Shields was good as well. But I think this takes the cake.

    so far I've also been likin this album most of theirs, "veckatimest" seemed a bit hyped to me and "shields" doesn;t seem to be better either.

    On the music streaming program WiMP, 'Lullabye' is listed as the first track of the album and 'Easier' as the last. But this is wrong right, 'Easier' should be the first and then followed by 'Lullabye'...yes?
