New Grizzly Bear Tracks, "Southern Point" and "Cheerleader"

Lots of stuff to hit upon today, but I suppose I'll start out with this news.

As you all probably know already, Grizzly Bear's new album, Veckatimest, leaked, and is fantastic.  A review will be up closer to the release date, but until then, the band has been previewing tracks for fans at a higher quality than the 128 kbps the leak appeared in.  Ed Droste discusses everything in detail at his Twitter feed.  Currently up for download/preview on various websites are album opener "Southern Point" and other standout, "Cheerleader".  Now, these songs may appear to be some of Grizzly Bear's best work to-date, and they are, but the scary thing is that I could name at least three songs on the album better than both.  For those who may not have gotten the hint already, I think Veckatimest is pretty legit.  

Anyway- below is a link for "Cheerleader," (courtesy of Stereogum) and an Imeem preview for "Southern Point".  Enjoy, and be sure to purchase Veckatimest, out May 26th via Warp.
