Grizzly Bear (aka “it on a stick in indie bands right now!”) appeared on The Colbert Report tonight to receive The Colbert Bump in anticipation of their forthcoming LP Shields. The Brooklyn outfit were part of the StePhest Colbchella ‘012 line-up, performing their new single ‘Yet Again‘ for tonight’s episode as well as ‘Sleeping Ute‘ and ‘Two Weeks’ as web exclusives. Ed Droste and co. also sat down for a hilarious interview with Colbert on the rocky lifeboat “Intrepid”, which ended with the group showing off their impressive harmonies as they sang a round with Stephen. Last night’s episode featured fun., and StePhest Colbchella will continue this week with appearances from Santigold and The Flaming Lips.
