All of that is true. Also true: With the current expansive fawning over Grizzly Bear it could be easy to temporarily forget about Dan Rossen’s Department Of Eagles. It gets more difficult, though, when In Ear Park’s title track is soundtracking Soft Bank commercials featuring Brad Pitt and a sensitive sumo wrestler. It gets slightly easier again when you find out the commercial’s only airing in Japan, but more people watch YouTube than television (unsubstantiated claim), so that’s not a legit hurdle. Anyone care to interpret?
The less handsome version:
In Ear Park is out via 4AD.
