Brooklyn-based experimental folk-rock quartet Grizzly Bear are on the brink of releasing two companions to their 2012 album 'Shields' – one of which, 'Shields: Expanded', is the original album plus eight extra b-sides, remixes and demos, while the other ('Shields: B Sides') is purely a collection of the previously unheard tracks. One of those unheard gems, Listen And Wait, was posted online yesterday for your listening (and not waiting) pleasure. Gliding from rough-hewn, rickety verses that tiptoe along tentative blurts of brass and straight into cacophonous choruses, it's the band at their most tempestuous. Stream it in the player above.
Warp will release 'Shields: Expanded' and 'Shields: B Sides' on the 12th November 2013.
