So, now that we can all relax a bit and breath a sigh of relief, I for one am eager to return to some sort of normalcy, where not every conversation is dominated by political talk. And so...
How about that new Deerhunter album? Anyone here like these guys and heard this yet? Seems like the kind of thing some folks around here would appreciate. I actually never got their first disc, and picked this up on somewhat of a whim, but holy crap is it great.
The first disc (which I guess is the "real" album) is quite good, although it gets a tiny but bogged down in the ambient middle section. That section is more than made up for by "Nothing Ever Happened" which is all kinds of great. Here's a live version that some of you may have seen at that Pool Party thing in Brooklyn this summer.
But the second album is really where it's at. They really embrace their inner-My Bloody Valentine here and it is glorious. Were it not for the fact that MBV are back together, I'd say thsi is the closest thing to a stylistic follow up to Loveless.
So yeah, maybe I'll be alone here, and maybe part of you are part of the weird Deerhunter backlash community, but I LOVE this album.
