Back in 2010, Grizzly Bear recruited Phoenix to remix one of their songs. However, Phoenix “never found the boldness to mess with their beautiful songs,” so instead they created an “aleatory and combinatory remix”, pairing a YouTube video of “Foreground” alongside a selection from Brian Eno’s 1975 ambient album Discreet Music. It appears Grizzly Bear did not have the same reservations when it came time to remix Phoenix’s new single, “Entertainment”, chopping and twisting synth and vocals alongside a frantic loop of percussion. Take a listen below via Spotify, or at Grizzly Bear Galore.
