Another super-fantastic new-ish Grizzly Bear song

Ok, so this song has been floating around for about half as long as its title suggests, BUT it has captivated since its initial release last week. I don't want to say it's "poppier" then anything Grizzly Bear has ever recorded. However it's certainly more upbeat. Although upbeat in a manic, frenzied, gasping-to-catch-your-breath kind of way, and not a la-la-la, sunshine-and-rainbows way. There's a weird scrambly keyboard riff and of course the eerie harmonies are still ever-present. While it might sound ominous, "Two Weeks" bodes incredibly well for their next album!
