Full Description
Working on this podcast as I have for a couple of years, I am often taken aback at albums that completely flew under my radar and yet still had enough buzz around them as to create a massive following. This parallel project for Grizzly Bear's Daniel Rossen is a fine example of a creative endeavor straight up my alley and yet I would not come to hear it until nearly 10 years after its release. Department of Eagles' (nee Whitey On The Moon UK) 2008 release, In Ear Park, is a beautiful collection of undulating vocal arrangements and gorgeous instrumentation that pays tribute to Rossen's recently deceased father. One can certainly draw comparisons to Grizzly Bear here considering it shares 3/4 of the same personnel, however this is certainly a departure in songwriting and composing. It's not an A&R man's type of record but sometimes a fishing trip is more about the journey and less about the hooks. I have no idea if that analogy makes any sense.

Department of Eagles is available on Amazon.

[**Father John Misty** -Mr. Tillman][3]
This week during "A Current Affair" we talked about a video by Father John Misty. What we neglected to mention was that the video he released is just him in front of a green screen without audio (which was released in a separate YouTube URL), encouraging others to "rip away" and linking to a tool allowing you to download the video from YouTube for additional editing. The video we watched and commented on was created by YouTube user rainforests using that green screen footage.
