Eclectic Mainline 23rd October 2013

The increasing trend for artists to releases “deluxe”, or “expanded”, versions of albums just a few months after the initial album’s release is an act of cynicism I cannot abide.  If you have extra music to release, why not just release it as another, separate LP?  The Beatles released two (or three in America) LPs a year.  There really is no need to force your fans to buy your album twice within a year to get the extra music. Phosphorescent and David Bowie, I’m thinking of you.  To their credit, Warp have made both options available with the new Grizzly Bear release.  You can buy the new 2 CD version of Shields, or get the extra tracks as a standalone LP or download.  Here’s one of the newly available songs:

Also in this week’s Eclectic Mainline, this by Black Hearted Brother, a collaboration between Neil Halstead, Nick Holton and Mark Van Hoen:
