Reading a headline containing the likes of both Grizzly Bear and Diplo might jar a few readers, as it did so to a portion of our crew. Sometimes genre gaps are best maintained without collaborative bridges, but at other times, when the bond is finally built, you question why it took so long to do so. After Grizzly Bear released Shields Expanded and the 12-inch vinyl Shields B-Sides, earlier this month, world famous DJ Diplo has taken it upon himself to remix one of their outtakes. The song, "Will Calls" was likely held off Shields due to it's juxtaposing jangly and frenetic tone, which apparently translates well with Diplo's flashy jolts. Ed Droste's cooling voice is a perfect contrast that glides above the kinetic turbulence. Listen below.
