4. Daniel Rossen-–Silent Hour/Golden Mile
What this borough (and by extension, indie rock) needs desperately right now is another gorgeous, endlessly fussed-over collection of songs from the mighty Grizzly Bear, and while it seems that day will come at some point in the not too distant future, we get a nice little stopgap here with Silent Hour/Golden Mile, the debut solo release from Grizzly Bear guitarist/songwriter Daniel Rossen. It's a relatively brief affair, its five songs cloaking in at just over 23 minutes, but it's also predictably rich and engulfing, driven by Rossen's expressive vocals and his consistently surprising guitar work.
