Back in 2009, it was announced that neo-sychedelic harmonizers Grizzly Bear were contributing music to the Blue Valentine soundtrack. They originally had intended to write some fresh tunes for the film, however the release date was brought forward and the guys felt they couldn’t make the new deadline. Instead, the film includes instrumental versions of many previously released Grizzly Bear songs.
Also making a contirbution to the soundtrack is Department of Eagles, Penny & the Quarters and Ryan Gosling himself.
Here’s one of the Grizzly Bear tracks titled ‘Foreground’ (the closing track on 2009’s Veckatimest) :
The Department of Eagles track from the film ‘In Ear Park’:

Blue Valentine stars Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams and is out in theaters now across Australia.
