This Is Our Jam: Grizzly Bear, "Gun Shy (Lindstrøm Remix)"

Leave it to space disco extraordinaire Hans-Peter Lindstrøm to turn Grizzly Bear's quietly meditative "Gun Shy" into an effervescent dance-floor banger. For the first four minutes or so, barely a speck of the original Shields standout can be discerned, but that's before Ed Droste's unmistakably honeyed vocals float in over the house keys. It's a moment that simultaneously justifies the track's label as a remix and comes off like a small epiphany. Few producers (if any) are on Lindstrøm's current level when it comes to lush house and meandering disco, and "Gun Shy" shows once again that the Norwegian producer is at the top of his game. While we'd never have guessed Droste's vocals could be transferred so to effortlessly to club setting, Lindstrøm's instincts prove spot on, and we can't help but wonder what else he could accomplish using Grizzly Bear as a starting point.
