NICOLAS JAAR'S GRIZZLY BEAR, BRIAN ENO REMIXES PRESSED AS RECORD STORE DAY EXCLUSIVE
Lux and Sleeping Ute split twelve-inch due via Warp
Record Store Day 2013 (April 20) has already promised loads of exclusive compilations, singles, left-field projects, and vinyl reissues. Now, Warp Records has added another item to the buffet, a twelve-inch single featuring remixes of Brian Eno and Grizzly Bear by Nicolas Jaar.
The limited edition vinyl boasts a re-worked version of Lux, the title track off Eno's most recent solo album. On the flip side, Jaar offers his take on Sleeping Ute, the opening track from Grizzly Bear's Fifty Best Albums of 2012-honoured Shields.
Jaar will team with the Grizzly men in May, when he plays the Brooklyn quartet's All Tomorrow's Parties showcase in London. In May, Eno will host an exhibition of his 77 Million Paintings audio-visual installation as part of the Red Bull Music Academy's New York edition, which includes an "illustrated talk" on May 6. We're not sure what that entails, but it will most likely be illuminating.
