    A beautiful, haunting record. I've always preferred Rossen's other projects to Grizzly Bear, where I think songs tend to become overstuffed and fussed over. This EP and the last Department of Eagles record cement Rossen as my favorite songwriter currently working.

    Its basically what you would expect from a member of grizzly bear going solo. And I mean that as a compliment. Once you listen to the excellent track Saint Nothing you'll know exactly what I mean.

    The way the EP grows from song to song--with a seamless flow inherently added midway through creation--Silent Hour/Golden Mile never ceases to impress.

    [Rossen] passes on Grizzly Bear and Department of Eagles' carefully manicured sprawl in favor of focus and immediacy. [No.86, p.57]

    Rather than the stripped-down or lonely songs that so often accompany the bill of "solo effort," these five songs are as polished, highly wrought, ornamental--take your pick--as any on Veckatimest.
