Before they were soundtracking Super Bowl ads, headlining festivals, making TV appearances and opening for Radiohead, Ed Droste started Grizzly Bear as a project meant only for friends. 15 years ago, Horn of Plenty was created largely in his Brooklyn apartment and after joining up multi-instrumentalist Chris Bear, Horn of Plenty was released by the upstart Brooklyn label Kanine Records in 2004. One year later, Horn of Plenty was rereleased with a bonus remix album, which will be included in the download card of this release.
Praise for Horn of Plenty
"The gentlemen of Grizzly Bear paw around in wholly distinct regions of gentle, nocturnal psych-folk, conjuring visions of an imagined bedroom collaboration between the Doug Yule-era Velvet Underground, Nick Drake, and a pajama-clad Pooh with his head jammed in a honey jar." Pitchfork Media
"Grizzly Bear captured its etherized folk on the beautiful Horn of Plenty (Kanine), a dreamy, evocative record that sounds like it was recorded a mile below sea level." Time Out NY
"Dreamy vocals and pillowy, guitar-driven effects that evoke Neil Young on cough syrup." V Magazine
“The pure atmospheric power of the songs is more than enough to hypnotize” Rolling Stone
