Today Grizzly Bear are releasing “Friend”, an EP of “new, reworked, and re-recorded material (including covers and collaborations)”. To be more specific, here you’ll find the band’s takes on classics like The Crystals’ ‘He Hit Me (And It Felt Like A Kiss)’, covers of Grizzly Bear by CSS, Band of Horses, and Atlas Sound, as well as collaborations with Dirty Projectors and Zach Condon (of Beirut).
Unfortunately, Grizzly Bear’s appearance on Conan O’Brien tonight has been cancelled due to the Writer’s Guild strike, but the band will be doing a free show at the Virgin Megastore (Union Square) on Wednesday. Grizzly Bear will take the stage in the cafe at 7:00 pm, but it is a good idea to get there early.
