Alright so I purchased Halycon Digest a week after it came out last year. For months I just couldn't get into it and didn't realize what everyone was making such a big fuss about. A week ago when I a had a million things going on I played it and it sounded completely different. It's like a subtle tsunami, it hits you but in the most peculiar of ways. Theres parts in certain songs that a just magic. I think all really good albums take time to get into. But Deerhunter definitely has a new fan! :)

Let's pretend we never touched the sugar.

But you know what they say, a distorted reality is now a necessity to be free.

Lately I have been listening to more of their stuff and I think I have the whole discography now apart from an EP or two.
I already throughly love Halcyon Digest (try saying that out loud, it's really such a beautiful name) and Microcastle so now I need to give the older stuff a more in-depth listen.

They are a truly brilliant band though and Bradford Cox is such an inspirational person, if you have the time read a bit about him and his childhood, it's amazing what he went through.

One thing that benefits from repeated listens and a look at live performances is the instrumentation here. I'm completely blown away by the use of guitar, made even more admirable by the fact that it's not especially in-your-face or showy.

If you do anything today please at least watch the first two minutes of this video, the intro here is absolutely magical. There might be some other instrument than guitar in there but for the most part it's just those three guys playing together making something other-worldly.

Christ, I used my adjectives as liberally as Stephanie Meyer up there but anyway the bottomline is that:

They are definitely in the top 5 of bands I am most excited to see at Bonnaroo. So good.

Everyone else is in awe of the cat whilst Bradford is just swagging out in his jacket and shades.
