Grizzly Bear's debut album Horn Of Plenty is basically a solo effort from main man Edward Droste; the rest of the band didn't join for another year, and in some respects the band is still primarily a front for Droste, who still remains the sole songrwiter five years later. Consequently, because there is no backing band, the album has a stripped-down sound, and Droste has been forced to use his voice as an instrument; he multilayers his vocals to create an almost-spectral sound. All in all, Droste has managed to craft a rather beautiful lo-fi album. Enjoy.
