Featured Department Of Eagles stories

We love year-end lists, it’s really a shame that no one made any this month. To remedy that, we asked a handful of our favorite artists what music they dug most over the last twelve months. No Age, Grizzly Bear, Girl Talk, Antony Hegarty, Robin Pecknold, Sara Quin, and Kevin Barnes are among the familiar… More »

New Department Of Eagles Live Video – “Herring Bone” (DUMBO Session)

Dan Rossen Month continues with another cut from the Department Of Eagles DUMBO session that brought us the unreleased “1997,” featuring Dan and Fred alone in a Brooklyn room with a view. This live “Herring Bone” is stripped of In Ear Park’s arrangements and accouterments, presented here in its piano-man core, unadorned but for a… More »

Department Of Eagles And Grizzly Bear Promise They All Still Love Each Other

Earlier this week the New York Times raised a few eyebrows with their profile on Dan Rossen’s Department Of Eagles project. It’s not surprising to see D.O.E. given such high-minded attention (they’re suddenly everywhere, from last week’s Conan to last night’s Bookeaters Benefit at Town Hall, and deservedly so). But the article uses contextually questionable… More »

Department Of Eagles Make Their Live Debut On Conan

Not like live television debut, I mean like they had never before played as a band in public until last night, when they did so before a nationally televised audience. No pressure, guys. And yes that came pretty fast, but they had Bookeaters to plug, and chances are Rossen made a fan of Conan’s music… More »

New Department Of Eagles – “1997” (New Song, Stereogum Premiere)

It took Grizzly Bear’s Dan Rossen and his non-Grizzly songwriting partner Fred Nicolaus a good five years to sculpt their second full-length In Ear Park. With “1997,” however, they’re already one track into a third LP. So maybe there won’t be such a long wait this time, all Dan has to do is finish recording… More »

New Department Of Eagles – “No One Does It Like You” (Album Version)

It’s been a year and a half since Dan Rossen and his longtime songwriting partner Fred Nicolaus dropped us a demo of “No One Does It Like You” as a tease to the duo’s first Department Of Eagles album since their years-old debut Whitey And The Moon UK. It wasn’t that D.O.E.’s next album wa… More »

Grizzly Bear

Grizzly Bear began as the moniker for the nocturnal, lo-fi bedroom songcraft of Ed Droste in 2005, but the project has since expanded into a full fledged four person outfit. More »

New Department Of Eagles – “In Ear Park”

Last April we got an unexpected and entirely welcome glimpse at the then-dormant Dan Rossen project Department Of Eagles, when Rossen’s songwriting partner and fellow Eagle departmentalist Fred Nicolaus sent us a track as sweet, sweet reminder that D.O.E. were still a BTW. Since then Dan’s day job, Grizzly Bear, and their Yellow House LP… More »

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

While Ed Droste was catching ears as (mostly) one-man band Grizzly Bear with his Stereogum-beloved 2004 debut Horn Of Plenty, the other songwriting-half of present-day GB, Dan Rossen, was an album into an awesome project of his own: Department Of Eagles. Time passed, the Grizz expanded to a full-blown quartet and went on to release… More »
