Deep Blue Sea
Dan Rossen of Grizzly Bear
As we've mentioned, Grizzly Bear was our guest on Blog Radio last night. In case you missed it, here's one of the highlights. Grizzly Bear's Dan Rossen gave us his beautiful take on "Deep Blue Sea," a traditional American folk song of mysterious origin that "seems to have been built out of a fragment of an old British ballad or sea song." (source) Take the time to listen to this through your headphones; its ethereal beauty is understated and haunting, and at the same time, surprisingly infectious:

We briefly mentioned Dan Rossen's other band, Department of Eagles, a while back, and this song has really grown on us over the last few months:
