Daniel Rossen – Silent Hour/Golden Mile EP

In an age where indie music frontmen are as interchangeable as the prepubescent members of Menudo, you may not be familiar with the name Daniel Rossen. As a songwriter of Grizzly Bear and Department Of Eagles, Rossen has been hailed as a great talent with mainstream appeal. Hell, even my lamestreamer cousin has Two Weeks on her iPod.

The Silent Hour / Golden Mile EP marks Rossen’s first solo effort, however he traverses a familiar musical landscape. The press release even admits this, stating: ‘It is an output from a musician you know, yet reveals the core you might not know he had’. I took that metaphysical nonsense to mean that this EP would sound exactly like Grizzly Bear. And it does. So all I can really muster is a less than enthusiastic “meh”.
