Daniel Rossen – “Not Coming Back”

Lately, Grizzly Bear member and Department Of Eagles leader Daniel Rossen has been posting whatever old, unreleased demos he has lying around, and we’ve already posted one untitled track.

Daniel Rossen – “Silent Song”

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.

Daniel Rossen, the Grizzly Bear member and Department Of Eagles frontman, is gearing up to release his debut solo EP. It’s called Silent Hour/Golden Mile, and it’s coming in a couple of months.

Watch Lil’ Dan Rossen’s Elvis Impression

If Ezra Koenig’s impression of a dorm room YouTube Dave Matthews balladeer wasn’t on point enough, try this perfect rendering of Elvis by Grizzly Bear singer/guitarist Dan Rossen. He’s REALLY CUTE. (Also he’s five years old here so that is not an inappropriate observation.) Lil’ Dan doesn’t have a lip curl, but he’s got plenty… More »

Department Of Eagles Sell Us Brad Pitt’s Strength In Japan

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… More »

Dan Rossen Covers Judee Sill

California folk singer (and the first person signed to David Geffen’s Asylum label) Judee Sill died of a drug overdose in 1979 at the age of 35. Before that, she released two beautiful, highly worth-checking-out collections, Judee Sill in 1971 and Heart Food in 1973. Grizzly Bear/Department Of Eagle Dan Rossen, though, chose a track… More »

Dan Rossen Covers JoJo For The New Yorker

Well, it was actually for Ed Droste’s birthday, but he performed it as part of the New Yorker’s “Love Is Strange” Speakeasy event this past Valentine’s Day at Galapagos in Dumbo. You remember, it was the song we posted when Grizzly Bear/Department Of Eagles wanted to make sure you knew they still loved each other. More »

New Department Of Eagles Video – “No One Does It Like You”

Last night at MoMA, Dan Rossen and Fred Nicolaus premiered their first video, for In Ear Park’s woozy standout “No One Does It Like You.” It was a PopRally event, the same performance series that has brought Sigur Rós and comedy short films to the museum in recent months. We sent Natasha Ryan to bring… More »

SXSW 2009: Friday In Photos

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy
On Friday we shook off the early-morning cobwebs and made a beeline to the Pitchfork/Windish Bash in time to catch the last couple tracks by psychedelic post-Vanishing Voice Brooklynites Woods on the outside stage (as far as labels go, this was undeniably the year of the Woodsist) and SchoolMore »

SXSW 2009: Wednesday In Photos

SXSW 2009 opened with a bit of bad luck turned good: It was too foggy for our flight to land in Houston, so they re-routed us directly to Austin, cutting out the layover, etc. Not all the passengers were happy, but the 50-something of us who listed Austin as final destination arrived in the sunny,… More »

Death Cab, Dept Of Eagles Do Starbucks Covers Comp

Refresher: Starbucks is a company that is in the business of selling $5 cups of coffee. Starbucks is also a company that is in the business of selling music. Basically the best business plan imaginable in 2009, good job guys. Starbucks will soon fill their diminishing inventory space with another Sweetheart compilation, asking some noteworthy… More »

Unreleased Department Of Eagles Tune Gets A Remix

Last month we premiered “1997,” a non-In Ear Park track from the DUMBO Sessions. The song showed up again last week when Department Of Eagles stopped by Daytrotter. Three’s a charm, so Doctor Rosen Rosen (no, not Doctor Rossen Rossen) has given the song a remix, explaining he added “drums, strings, piano, synths, and muthafuk’… More »
