Two Weeks

Phil Ford

Grizzly Bear's "Two Weeks" has been the Song of the Summer for me. I bought Veckatimest earlier this summer on the suggestion of John Howland and Andrew Flory, with whom I did a very fun and satisfying panel on American pop music and middlebrow culture at a conference in Glasgow back in July. Anyway, "Two Weeks" reminds me of what Brian Wilson called his Smile-era songs — a "teenage symphony to God." It sort of sounds like Wilson, too. Like, say, "Good Vibrations," it's a bulletproof earworm — it's been in my head for weeks now. I don't mind, though. 

So there's a fan video of it:

That's right, a FAN VIDEO. Someone just made this for fun.
