Grizzly Bear, Emma Pollock, Shocking Pinks

Brooklyn art-rock band Grizzly Bear revisits the creepy 1962 Phil Spector song "He Hit Me"; new music from Brazilian singer Ceu finally makes it to the U.S.; Scottish singer-songwriter Emma Pollock releases her solo debut after leaving the Delgados; New Zealand rockers Shocking Pinks pay homage to My Bloody Valentine; Philadelphia's Valerie Project score a re-imagined soundtrack to an obscure 1970 Czechoslovakian film; indie outsiders Lucinda Blackbear make beautiful, rainy day music, from our Second Stage series.
