On March 20, Warp will release Silent Hour / Golden Mile, a five-song solo EP from Grizzly Bear/Department of Eagles guitarist Daniel Rossen that’s set to include “Saint Nothing,” the plaintive, piano-based heartbreaker streaming below. We cannot emphasize the word “plaintive” enough — there’s simply no way to teach someone to communicate sadness the way Rossen can. (We’ve tried, it doesn’t work.) And hearing this helps us appreciate the many individual layers of Grizzly Bear’s music that much more. So yeah, time to get excited for that next full-length that’s supposedly in the works.
