I'm waiting for the official release on this, but it seems Lotus Plaza did a cover of Cut Copy's Where I'm Going back in October.

iTunes - Music - Need You Now / Where I'm Going - Single by Cut Copy

Nice job.

Nice job.
understandable. it's so frustrating that this album is so unknown that i don't even have any youtube videos to post.

I've never heard of these guys, but your enthusiasm has made me add it to my list of stuff to check out.

it's by far the best album i've heard since last year's Washed Out album, which was #1 on my 2011 list.

spooky action at a distance | Tumblr

stream the track "Strangers" here. for reference, it's one of my least favorite songs on the album. still good though.

This album rules. Monoliths is perfect. I like this a lot more than Parallax; it's far more poppy and energetic and brings to mind a lot of the aspects of Deerhunter I love. Augh, I hope the critics praise the hell out of this album come April so people will bother with it.

Shouter was a fuckhead for bashing Microcastle though.

Glad you liked it. I as well hope it gets strong reviews. It's really deserving of a lot of praise. there isn't a weak song on the album, IMO.

Just listened to the stream of Strangers. If that's one of the weaker tracks, I'll definitely have to check this out.

"Strangers" features the best drumming on the album, by far. Overall, I would rank this song probably 7th or 8th on the album.

This album still kicks ass.

Monoliths is my song of the year right now.

I'm not usually a huge fan of shoegaze type music, but I was definitely digging "Antoine."

I've been listening to this a lot for the last month or two. I really enjoy it, but he overdoes it with the reverb. It suited the Floodlight Collective because the songs were more trancelike, but this record is made up of fairly traditional (excellent) songwriting, and the reverb obscures it. It would have been much better if it had Halcyon Digest style production, but it's still really good. I like both Lotus Plaza albums better than the Atlas Sound record. It seems like the Deerhunter guys are really good for Cox.

I hope Deerhunter let the guitars rip on their next record. They are rock beasts when they play live, and if they could capture that power on record (or just release a live album longer than the amazing itunes live) it would pretty much be the best thing ever released.

Deerhunter are the best band in the world.

interesting comments regarding the reverb. personally, one of the things that hooked me on this album from the start is the fact that the reverb was toned down quite a bit in comparison to The Floodlight Collective.

agreed with LM, Monoliths is by far my favorite song of the year.
