Speaking of crying! Phoenix posted on their journal yesterday that after some prodding and a lot more deep thinking, they've remixed Grizzly Bear's "Foreground". In English better than our own, they've deemed it an "aleatory and combinatory" take on the Veckatimest heartbreaker, adding to the fray "Canon in D" from Brian Eno's ambient opus, Discreet Music. Instead of posting right away, we spent a most of last night and all of this morning listening to it right here. Aaaand we'll leave you with words straight from Phoenix's fingers: "We never found the boldness to mess with [Grizzly Bear's] beautiful songs. So the other day we figured, maybe if we combine great things together (Grizzly Bear, Eno, chance), it would create something good." They were right.
