I’ve always been a pretty big fan of In Ear Park, the 2008 album from Department of Eagles, so I was pretty excited to learn that they would be releasing some material that’s been recorded for years but has never seen the light of day. And in the process, I found out that there was actually an album before In Ear Park (I know, get with the times, right?). So after a little exploring of that, I sort of fell in love with this tune. It’s pretty much all that I love about this band, a hint of that Grizzly Bear sound (actually, it’s probably much more historically accurate that Grizzly Bear has a hint of that Department of Eagles sound) mixed with some electronic elements, all bundled together in a great lo-fi package.

In the ‘slight’ chance that you have been living in a cave for the past couple of years and have no idea who these guys are, it is only fair for you to also listen to ‘No One Does It Like You’, a whimsical wonder from their sophomore album In Ear Park released by 4AD on October 7, 2008.
