We could talk less about a lot of bands...but them be our breaks...surely The Beatles at least have been discussed to death.

Call me closed-minded if you must, but I should also point out that when Cox started that poo-blog, I found it pretty hard even to try to take the band seriously, anymore. Ridiculous.

By the way, "River Card," from the Atlas Sound record, is probably my favorite of the Deerhunter posse tracks. I think that y'all should give it a spin, regardless of the poop.

I'll have to give that one a few more listens. It was pretty nice though.

I checked out the songs that were recommended to me on the other page.

I didn't like them.

Sorry, Mikal. Don't stone me.

Their music is far from being "immediate", and thus will probably turn off a lot of people checking them out based on good review scores. The lack of immediacy is probably the reason I previously said I wish they would have only released one album in the last 2 years instead of 4 and an EP, as I think a more concise or easily digestible album would do wonders for gaining them fans and more exposure. I still like all the releases, I'm just saying that they could have been huge right now if there was one album of their best work instead of 4+.

Could of, would of, should of. End of the day, even an edited album like that wouldn't be for everyone either, and they'd still only be a "big indie band" even with that, which isn't saying all that much. And I have no clue how they work, maybe if they spent too much time in the editing and reworking stages, they'd end up with far too overworked mediocrity that at the core should have been great (ala HTDAAB...)

Then would it be safe to say that Deerhunter is waiting to live in the limelight?

OK, I'll bite. Took a few plays to grow on me, but Microcastle is top 10 material for 2008. Weird Era Cont is pretty good so far, there's not a whole lot of substance to it, but I don't consider them to be the same album or anything. It's one of the better bonus discs I've heard in a while, if anything.
