Department of Eagles, 'Archive 2003–2006' (American Dust)

Critical Mass

by Sean Fennessey

Grizzly Bear's Daniel Rossen has been making time for side project Department of Eagles (his first proper band) since 2000, working with NYU buddy Fred Nicolaus to craft shifty, sometimes goofy baroque pop adorned with electronic textures. So this compilation-hushed, self-serious, at times achingly beautiful-reveals a vulnerable underbelly. It's not an essential set, but there's enough here (take the gallant "Grand Army Plaza" for a stroll or seven) to tide you over till the Veckatimest crew sets sail again.
