323. "Two Weeks" by Grizzly Bear

It's been a second since I slapped this stiff stallion, so I'll whip it out again: Drum creativity is song creativity.

The rainbows and mists of harmony collect within the valleys of the drums' sure stone.

Truly, one of the most stirring drum performances on any recording, down to the solo tip-tapping hi-hat in the vocal breakdown. When you're killing a basic hi-hat beat holder, you're ebullient with sound.
