Everything I’ve heard from the upcoming Deerhunter album has been fantastic. They seem to be retreating a bit from the 8-track roughness present on Monomania and the result reminds me of a mix of the bedroom experimentation of frontman Bradford Cox’s Atlas Sound solo project and grayscale indie sheen of guitarist Lockett Pundt’s Lotus Plaza. There’s still a weirdness to these songs though, even if I can’t quite put my finger on where it’s coming from. Coming from somebody who revisits Cryptograms more often than Halcyon Digest, that’s meant as a compliment. In the woozy video for “Breaker” above, you can watch Cox and Pundt share vocals on a track I feel comfortable in describing as damn near poppy.
