Song of the day: "Up On High" by Daniel Rossen

I hate it when critics write that such-and-such a musician sounds "like Nick Drake." There was only one Nick Drake and we'll never see his like again. And yet, this track from Grizzly Bear's Daniel Rossen puts me in a "Five Leaves Left" state of mind. Rossen's style is more assertive, but I wasn't surprised to hear that as a young man, he had what he calls "an angsty obsession with Nick Drake."
