GRIZ­ZLY BEAR – PAINTED RU­INS

DNA Magazine - - MUSIC REVIEWS -

Who said in­die rock and gay voices are in­com­pat­i­ble? For their fifth proper al­bum, Brook­lyn cuties Griz­zly Bear are ready to re-ed­u­cate us all. Mourn­ing Sound and Three Rings clang ex­actly as you’d imag­ine the queer off­spring of The Killers and U2 would. While it’s epic in scope and would sound awe­some turned up loud on a road trip across Route 66, Painted Ru­ins also of­fers a sub­tle homo take on the genre. We guess lead singer’s Ed Droste’s di­vorce from his long term part­ner, in­te­rior de­signer Chad McPhall, in­flu­enced much of the soul-search­ing here. FYI: Griz­zly Bear are em­bark­ing on a world tour to pro­mote this al­bum so get your paws ready for de­tails of their global Ru­ins.
