|Grizzly Bear Shields: B-Sides Limited Deluxe 180gram Vinyl LP + Digital Download
· ‘Shields: B-Sides’ is available on deluxe 180gram vinyl with digital download code, and features five never before
heard tracks, three of which are demos recorded in Marfa,
Texas before the band officially began tracklisting the album in New York and Cape Cod.
· The Marfa Demos include the hypnotizing new single ‘Will
Calls’ plus ‘Taken Down’ and ‘Everyone I Know’, as well as
two beautifully constructed bonus tracks, ‘Smothering Green’ and ‘Listen And Wait’.
· ‘Shields: Expanded’ also includes three remarkable remixes
of tracks from the original ‘Shields’, including the Nicholas Jaar remix of ‘Sleeping Ute’ (which was released as a limited edition 12’’ for Record Store Day earlier this year), the Liars remix of ‘A Simple Answer’ and a Lindstrom remix of ‘Gun-Shy’.
· ‘Shields’ received some of 2012’s best reviews, with Mojo
heralding the album as “heroically creative” and the NY Times hailing it as “enthralling”. The band performed tracks from the album on ‘Colbert’, ‘Fallon’, ‘Letterman’,‘Leno’, ‘Jools Holland’ and ‘Ellen’, and played their biggest headlining and international festival shows to date.
