Guy From Grizzly Bear Now Apparently Into Eagles

1. Department of Eagles, "1997"
Daniel Rossen (also of Grizzly Bear) says he's stopped seeing red on this non-album cut recently recorded in Dumbo, and we think these aching pomo blues suit him much better. [JP's Blog]

2. Annie, "Two of Hearts" (Stacy Q cover)
The beats on this version would've made heads explode in the eighties, before the next decade changed our bpm tolerance forever. Other than that, it's a pretty straightforward cover. [Panda Toes]

3. Fennesz, "Saffron Revolution"
No revolution here, just the same brilliantly spacey sonic landscapes Fennesz has been making his whole career. [Pitchfork]

4. MSTRKRFT feat. N.O.R.E., "Bounce (A-Trak Remix)"
We didn't think a track that proclaims "all I do is party" could be any more fun, and yet A-Track somehow manages to lighten up the original enough to make us want to listen to it again. [Find Voltorb Catch Voltorb]

5. G-Side feat. Enya, "Speed of Sound"
G-Side keep their heads "in the clouds," mostly by cutting the ethereal wispiness of Irish New Ager Enya into the mix. [Ants in My Trance]
