Grizzly Bear Music from Blue Valentine, LAKESHORE

May 1, 2011

Grizzly-BearIn his liner notes, director Derek Cianfrance writes that he originally considered Smetana and Vangelis for the soundtrack to Blue Valentine. Finally, Grizzly Bear met his needs, and the needs of the entire cast, who often listened to Yellow House while filming to elicit a collective mood. From bashing synth/drum solos (“I Live With You [Instrumental]”) to banjo filled, Pet Sounds-styled epics (“Granny Diner”) to plaintive vocal ’n’ piano songs (“Foreground”), Grizzly Bear expands their gentle magic into cinematic realms.
