Daniel Rossen – “Silent Song”

Amrit Singh | February 1, 2012 - 2:07 pm

Daniel Rossen, the man behind many of Grizzly Bear and Department Of Eagles’ finest moments, and the child prodigy behind this insanely delightful Elvis impression, is releasing his proper solo debut this spring. (For this post’s intents and purposes we are side-stepping his covers of Judee Sill, and of JoJo, though you really should get on that cover of JoJo.) Dan’s offering an EP via Warp Records, the same label that releases his Grizzly Bear songs, with the name Silent Hour/Golden Mile. We’ve posted its “Saint Nothing,” and now comes “Silent Song,” similarly negatory in title, similarly rich in sound: it splays that dusty sepia that colors so many of Dan’s acoustic tracks, with a kicker of pianos, slide guitar, and impassioned Rossen vocals, counter-melodies, harmonies, and the like. Hear it, for it is another good one:

Silent Hour/Golden Mile is out 3/19 via Warp.
