KEXP is proud to present Live at KEXP Volume Three, a limited edition CD featuring live, one-of-a-kind, in-studio performances by The Long Winters, The Shins, Frank Black, Cloud Cult, Under Byen, The English Beat, Peter Bjorn and John, Billy Bragg, and more! 100% of the proceeds benefit KEXP programming.
For the next few months, weâ€™ll be bringing you insight into the performances, the making of the compilation, and even the artwork itself. This week, we feature Grizzly Bear, who contribute a version of “Knife,” originally found on their most recent release Yellow House. Cheryl Waters remembers:
â€œThe Grizzly Bear session at KEXP was one of the most haunting and beautiful in studio performances I’ve ever witnessed. Their faraway sound and enchanting echoing vocal harmonies gave me goosebumps. The room was completely still and the air actually felt palpably thicker. I was absolutely mesmerized as I sat there holding my breath, for fear that the slightest inhalation would break the spell under which the band held me utterly captive.â€
