one of my favorite album of last year is getting an expanded reissue, featuring B-sides and demos along with a set of remixes provided by Nicolas Jaar, Lindstrøm and Liars. In advance of its release, Grizzly Bear has provided us with a teaser in the form of “Will Call” that was recorded at a session in Marfa, Texas – the first one after their short hiatus. This was before the final tracking of Shields, and in the end none of the these demos ever made it on to the album. Going by the slow-moving beauty of “Will Call”, it’s quite revealing just what a hight level of consistency the band has achieved over the past decade or so. Shield is almost perfect as it is, but “Will Calls” would certainly not have made it any less great.
