iTunes Review

More than four years in the making (The Cold Nose was originally released in 2003), In Ear Park is the sophomore record by what is essentially a collaboration between Fred Nicolaus and Daniel Rossen (Grizzly Bear), joined here by that band’s Chris Taylor and Chris Bear, and by bassist Nat Baldwin. Lonely-sounding pianos, whispering guitars, rattling percussion and songs that shimmer and haunt are the order of the day. Dedicated to Rossen’s recently deceased father, the songs on In Ear Park feel intimate and personal, and Rossen’s voice — a husky, warm warble — lends a very distinct touch, especially to the mournful “Phantom Other,” the twinkling “Around the Bay,” and the wistful title track. The grand piano intro and otherworldly slide guitar on “Teenagers” waltzes along with near glee, and The Beach Boys-like backup chorus and walls of reverb surrounding “No One Does It Like You” imparts a luxuriant feel without burying the song in layers.  “Waves of Rye” and “Therapy Car Noise” sound like they were pulled out of a dusty old magician’s trunk, full of atmospherics and ambient noise, while a rippling banjo carries “Balmy Night.”

The obvious singles 'No One Does It Like You', 'Teenagers', 'Phantom Order' and the title track, are well worth downloading, and if you're feeling adventurous, try out 'Therapy Car Noise' for some postmodern passion-mixing, and 'Balmy Night', which I swear I've heard before. Or, you know, just download the whole thing.


Potential album of year. Rossen is probably one of the best songwriters alive

Loved this album

This album was a really great listening experience. Nicolaus and Rossen come together to put down some really sweet songs - beautiful melodies, great ears a just full of honey. I'm so glad that my friend recommended these guys to me.

Originally known as the Whitey on the Moon UK, Department of Eagles blossomed from the recording project of two college roommates into purveyors of ambitious yet intimate music inspired by Van Dyke Parks and Paul McCartney. Fred Nicolaus and Daniel Rossen met in 2000, when they were assigned as each other's roommates during their freshman year at New York University. During their spring semester, they began experimenting with samples, recording software, and guitars, making music with the atmospheric...
