Grizzly Bear, Shields: B-Sides
Want to remember what it feels like to fall in love all over again? Brooklyn natives Grizzly Bear want you to, too. Their fourth release Shields revived a major interest in the group back in 2012 after initially making waves with 2009′s Veckatimest, and today marks the release of exclusive tracks dropped from the album, new demos, and new remixes. Of course, the band’s seamless indie sound remains intact, but imagine that layered in electronic artist Nicholar Jaar’s signature weird sound. Bliss, indeed.
Erasure, Snow Globe
What’s a little mistletoe, a little Depeche Mode, and a lot of bizarre reimaginings of favorite songs? Erasure’s got your back with one of the more impressive seasonal releases of the year, blending stock songs like “Silent Night” and “The Christmas Song” with originals like synth-fused “Blood on the Snow” and the choice song to drink spiked eggnog to this year, “Gaudete.” One listen-through will secure Snow Globe on your December party playlist until the end of time, what more could one ask for?
Anthony Green, Young Legs
If Anthony Green’s name doesn’t ring a bell right away, how about Circa Survive or Saosin? Green’s solo material has been impressing critics and fans alike for five years now, and mellowed from his oft-treaded punkier routes with a more acoustic sound. Stand-out tracks include “Young Legs” and closing piece “You Have to Believe It Will Happen”. Even in the dregs of November, Green will make you want to take the car top down and head straight to the beach…so just go with it.
That’s all for this week, stay tuned to WERS for the best in new music!
