Blonde Redhead – “Much More To Lady M (Remix By Chris Bear Of Grizzly Bear)”

Last year, Blond Redhead, a band who's maintained an aura of mystery despite spending a couple of decades in New York's much-scrutinized indie rock scene, released their album Barragán.

Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor Wrote A Cookbook

Grizzly Bear member Chris Taylor is a busy man. He releases solo music as CANT, he co-founded the Terrible Records label, and he has a truly impressive chin/cheekbones/hair-swoop situation, which cannot be easy to maintain.

She painted the album covers of some her favorite albums onto her face and it turned out weirdly beautiful but also kind of freaky. "I stupidly thought I could knock these out in a… More »

Grizzly Bear – “Will Calls (Baths Remix)”

We already heard Diplo's remix of Grizzly Bear's buried-then-excavated "Will Calls (Marfa Demo)." Now here's another version of the song as filtered through the mind of Will Wiesenfeld, aka Baths.

Members Of Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear, Walkmen, Beach House To Cover Gene Clark On Tour

No Other, the 1974 solo album from the former Byrds member, is one of those cult-favorite albums that you're probably never heard of unless you're part of its cult.
