Grizzly Bear posted today a little heads up for fans, “You probably haven’t heard this song,” and linked their track “Blackcurrant Jam” from the album, David Shrigley’s: Worried Noodles Compilation.” Sure enough, we hadn’t heard the track. Given that the Youtube link had only been played 300 times since being shared last month, we assume you haven’t heard this song either.
The album was titled after and put together in mind of David Shrigley’s book of the same name. Shrigley is an English artist: a sculptor, a writer, a painter, photographer and musician. The album featured many notable artists including Franz Ferdinand, David Bryne, The Dirty Projectors, Hot Chip, and more (see below).
Reaction: This is what I’d call “artsy.”
