Department of Eagles

Don't you love it when you hear a song that completely speaks to you, that pretty much sums up where you are at in life in that particular moment? I had that happen to me the other day when I stumbled upon the "new" release from Department of Eagles. Department of Eagles is of course the brainchild of Dan Rossen, who is the singer/guitarist for Grizzly Bear. While Ed Drotse may impress the ladies with his angelic croon of a voice, Rossen is responsible for much of the arrangements on the songs. It is quite apparent what his responsibilities are in Grizzly Bear when you compare them to Department of Eagles. "While We're Young" is a track off of their upcoming archival release of past songs that didn't quite make it on to an official release. It befuddles me that this track was deemed unfit for a previous release since this is one of the best songs I have heard all year. This jangling ramshackle of a tune will keep you swaying back and forth while you hit repeat on your Itunes all day.
