    Department of Eagles - "Therapy Car Noise"

    Like "Settle Back," "Therapy Car Noise" is tragically short. I can only assume its creators understood the song to be an interlude, which is silly and would make me furious if the song wasn't so goddamn beautiful. Still, I guess sleep is only an interlude from what we define as our "real" life. But aren't the lives of dreams as real as any life you lead awake? There's a fantastical, mystical nature to the lilting piano that instantly transports you somewhere deep underground to a hidden cave. Or possibly an underwater hotel. The song also features an early glimpse of Daniel Rossen's glorious signature quaver in the days before Grizzly Bear. Check it out.
