New Music Tuesday: Grizzly Bear, Phoenix, Sharon Van Etten

It should come as no surprise that our most recommended album of the week is the latest album from Grizzly Bear called Veckatimest. We've been patiently waiting for this one for some time now and now it's finally here. I've only been listening to it for an hour or so now but I already love this album. From the very first track on the album, "Southern Point", you pretty much know you're going to love this album.

But don't take our word for it, Pitchfork gave the album a 9.0 in their review and just about every music blog I've visited today have been unanimous in their praises for this album. To make things even better you can pick up the album for only $3.99 if you purchase the mp3 album from Amazon.com.

Veckatimest isn't the only the new release we're looking forward to today. Also out is Phoenix's latest album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. I also highly recommend you check out the new album Because I Was In Love from Sharon Van Etten.
