Chillwave distributors Grizzly Bear have announced plans to build on their 2012 release Shields with two subsequent releases Shields: Expanded and Shields: B-Sides. The band have unveiled the first unheard cut from the sessions, Listen And Wait which will be available on the Expanded version.
Both additional releases have a street date of next Friday, 8th November and will feature B-side recordings, demos and remixes. Those familiar with the critically acclaimed Shields are sure to take to the new material quickly, and from what we can gather from Listen And Wait the tracks exist within the same sonic scope as the A-side tracks. In fact it’s hard to imagine why this blissed-out gem failed to make the cut.
Having just performed at Austin City Limits, and headlined at CBGB festival, Grizzly Bear have their sights set on Australia, heading down as part of the upcoming Falls Festival before they head out on their own, performing a one-off headlining gig at the Sydney Opera House.
