Grizzly Bear’s Daniel Rossen dropped two ‘old’ tracks on his SoundCloud page recently. The first is an untitled piece that drew a ton of attention and has nearly 15,000 plays since October 20. Recorded in 2009, Rossen sounds like a modern day Nick Drake.
The second, “Not Coming Back”, is one that Rossen admits “caring about.” Who knows if he’ll make it downloadable. It’s soaked in reverb with haunting melodies and sounds more Grizzly Bear and less Department of Eagles. In other words, more indie pop and less quirky than the power pop tunes from In Ear Park.
