Brooklyn quartet offer up 'Cheerleader'

Grizzly Bear are promoting the release of their new album by giving away a free song from Veckatimest for download.

'Cheerleader' is archetypal Grizzly Bear: patient, sullen and with drum patterns that seem taught by the ghosts of girl-groups, Chris Taylor and Christopher Bear's voices reaching up in protest at instrumentation that refuses to be rushed.

You can find the MP3 of 'Cheerleader' here, at the online home of their label Warp.

Released on May 25th, Veckatimest is the band's third studio full-length.
