When a member of Grizzly Bear releases a new track, you can bet your buttons we're going to listen. Especially if that individual is also part of Department of Eagles.
"Not Coming Back" was recorded some time ago, but just released today by Daniel Rossen. According to his Soundcloud page:
This one is from January 2011 around the same time as a few of the EP songs. it's not exactly finished, the lyric is rough, but I still enjoy what it is and eventually this song lead to other tunes on the EP and on Shields that I'm happy with. It's a wintery New York song to me, it reminds me of home. And at this particular moment I miss home, and I feel like I should be there after all that's happened recently. So there it is.
As we head into winter, I'm definitely enjoying the folksy vibes here. It sounds a bit like Elliott Smith, in fact.
