Congratulations to Ed Droste for being chosen as one of Out Magazine’s musicians represented in the Out 100 for 2012.
Take it all in stride/ Speak, don’t confide.” That’s a memorable couplet that Droste sings on Shields, his latest album with Brooklyn quartet Grizzly Bear, and an apt summary of the musician’s output over the past nine years. There’s always been a sense of knowing and not telling in the gorgeous guitar rock he and his bandmates produce. Shields, a thunderous, more outgoing achievement all but cements Droste’s status as one of indie rock’s most gifted singer-songwriters. - Out Magazine
