Grizzly Bear performed aboard the USS Intrepid for last night’s episode of The Colbert Report at StePhest Colbchella ‘012: RocktAugustFest. The rockers joined Colbert in a small, unstable rowboat for the interview. Perhaps not the most conventional place to have a conversation, but it did provide some additional awkward humor.
In addition to the interview in which Colbert suggests their sound falls more into the smooth jazz genre, the Brooklyn guys performed “Yet Again,” a track from their upcoming record Shields, set for release on Sept. 18 via Warp.
Watch the interview and the performance below.
