Still deciding whether I'd be bored listening to them on the train to work. Might give it a go tomorrow.
i quite likes 'Cryptograms' in places but 'Microcastle' just bored me.
is they are capable of greatness (heatherwood, nothing ever happened, like new) but very rarely hit those heights
i won't be bothering with their next album
considering that when their last album (and, indeed any of their records except I dunno maybe the first one which I've not actually heard) was good, it was very good. A better course of action would be to listen to their album once, select which tracks you think are promising based on that one listen, then only listen to them. Then make a playlist with all your favourite Deerhunter hits in one convenient location!
and can't really get into it. It's ok, but it hardly sets my world on fire.
With two of my photographs (Deerhunter + School Of Seven Bells) accompanying the piece.
the shit is even on the sunday times!
Is still my favourite record (probably) of 2008 - fucking adore it. It does special things to me. I can't get along with the free bonus album or Cryptograms to the same degree though.
their songs have a weird way of burying themselves into your subconscious. Microcastle refuses to get boring, it's pretty much perfect.
I'm not arsed about convinsing you either way mind just enjoy it if ya dont if ya dont or somthing.
I've listened to cyptograms and microcastle a couple of times and thought 'yeah, I'm quite enjoying this, it's okish, but I bet if I listened to it another 3 or 4 times IT WOULD BURY ITSELF IN MY BRAIN AND I WOULD LOVE MR COX FOREVER AND LISTEN TO NOTHING ELSE'. Problem is, I can't be bothered to listen to them another 3 or 4 times, because it hasn't really grabbed me YET.
