I'm yet to listen to any music by the Department Of Eagles but i have heard Grizzly Bear and i've been meaning to revisit their work for some time now, Daniel Rossen's Silent Hour/Golden Mile is as good a reason as any to speed up my reaquiantance with the Brooklyn quartet and i'll be sure to check out D of E now too. This EP has a lush resonant quality, that really bowled me over upon first listen, Rossen's emotive voice and distinctive guitar playing sound gorgeous when paired with cavernous drum hits and scintillating strings. All this is on display after the opening strums of Up On High which precedes to ebb and flow with beauty and grace, the strings reminscent of Nick Drake's Bryter Layter. Silent Song and Return to Form are similarly epic yet delightfully restrained featuring pastoral guitar and a brushed cymbals. The plaintive piano chords in Saint Nothing evoke the solemn menace of a young Trent Reznor, but sound forlorn and wise with the Rossen's soulful croon over them. The EP ends with the shuffling drums and Faheyesque Guitar of Golden Mile with Rossen singing "For a silent hour, for a golden mile, there is bliss in this mess, there is madness all around" I can't describe this wonderful opus any better than that, except to add here's hoping we get an hour's worth of beauty next time round.

A really brilliant EP, although it's a shame it's so short (only ~25 minutes).

For anyone who's loved his Department of Eagles and Grizzly Bear stuff, this is a must buy!

Rossen does it again 26 Mar. 2012
By Anaximander - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Yet another quality music release from Daniel Rossen. This 23 minute EP does not depart radically from the sounds and styles that Rossen creates with his other acts, Grizzly Bear and Department of Eagles. This is not an exploratory electronic album or a free-form jazz odyssey. Songs like Up on High and Return to Form slowly build up from fingerpicking before dramatically opening up with layers of instrumentation and percussion. Silent Song and Golden Mile are more upbeat but still retain Rossen's moody grandeur. Overall, the EP sounds like a continuation of Department of Eagles' Archive, with a bit more polish and with Rossen's electric guitar a bit more in the forefront. His distinctive vocals and melodies are as beautiful and subtle as ever. If you like this, you should also check out his recent contribution to a tribute album, Waterfalls.

great album 25 Jun. 2013

I prefer the Grizzly Bear songs with Daniel Rossen on lead vocals, so I'm happy to have his solo album.

Fantastic 19 Sept. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is what the new Grizzly Bear album should've been. raw; emotional; ambitious. This is not only my favorite release this year, ep or otherwise, but also some of my favorite guitar music ever. Every song is an experience, a journey, better than the last. If you're a fan of Grizzly Bear, Department of Eagles, or rock in general, you owe it to yourself to check this gem out.

Fantastic` 3 Sept. 2012
By Pick George - Published on Amazon.com
Everything good about Grizzly Bear without the layers of distracting distortion. Here Rossen's unique guitar really shines through and his song structures are buttressed by the clarity. Makes you reevaluate the Grizzly Bear catalog and you wonder if Edward Droste is more of someone who just throws noise and barbershop a the wall as opposed to a musician.
