Watch Daniel Rossen Cover “Hang Me, Oh Hang Me”
Dan Rossen has always been Grizzly Bear’s Earth element, a perfectly polar foil to Ed Droste’s more honey-dipped ethereality, and in this video he indulges that grounded, dusty, salt-of-the-earth vibe with a cover of folk standard “Hang Me, Oh Hang Me.” It’s a one-camera affair against a black backdrop and the levels are imperfect, and yet Rossen comes through perfectly. It’s a frame that suits him. Watch it at Vulture.
Oh also, Dan’s got a solo EP out and it’s great.
