"The Floodlight Collective", an album made by Deerhunter's guitar player leaked last night. i must say, this album is excellent. i would put it up there with the new Animal Collective and Here We Go Magic. i would even rate it above the Atlas Sound LP.

bump, because as Denzel Washington says in "Training Day", "This is not an option".

check it out, and discuss how great it is here. now.

Thanks for posting this, mikal. I didn't even realize that this record was happening, let alone leaking. Did Cox have anything to do with this, or is it all Lockett Pundt? I am totally in the dark, about this shit.

I haven't ever enjoyed any of Deerhunter's records (including the Atlas Sound debut, from which I particularly loved "River Card"), but I've enjoyed several individual tracks, from each. I especially enjoyed Pundt's songs, on Microcastle, so maybe this'll be a keeper, for me...? I'm definitely curious, so I suppose we'll have to see.

i think Cox does backing vocals on one song, and that's it. it's definitely worth a listen.

Well, I am taking a look. "Quicksand" sounds more like Cox's descriptions of Microcastle than Microcastle itself! I can definitely hear the girl groups, in this one. I have not yet quite finished the record, so my opinion isn't fully formed or even particularly reliable. All I can say for sure is that this sounds pretty good!

And a lot better than a Deerhunter LP, too. No doubt.

Thanks for the heads-up. I'd never even have known this record existed, let alone that I should give it a listen, were it not for this thread. Decent, very self-aware, throwback cover, too:

Actually, to hell with "pretty good"--this record is great. I wonder how this'll hold up, as the year goes on and the spins pile up...? Man, I'm really floored/surprised by how much I enjoyed this thing! Again, thanks for the notice!

Okay, just one more post. I feel that it's important for me to let you know that after my second listen, this is my favorite record of the new year. Better than Merriweather Post Pavilion, yes. So far. That one's held up exceedingly well, in this very digital age, so The Floodlight Collective could easily fall off the map. Only time will tell.

All that I know for sure, at this point, is that this record MUST be heard. Please, anybody who is reading this--make a point of finding at least a song or two, from this thing, and giving 'em a spin. You will thank me later, just as I'm so endlessly thanking mikal, right now. If you need guidance, I'd try to locate "Antoine" (the best track), "Red Oak Way," "These Years," or "A Threaded Needle."

Holy Hades, this is a monster record!

That's a rather strong endorsement. I will try to hear it somehow.

Well, it hasn't technically come out, just yet! You needn't worry, if you can't find it. All in due course. I'll be ordering my copy, this very evening. Wonderful stuff. I just hope that it takes less than three months to get my hands on, unlike that fucking Animal Collective record.

The one-two punch of "Sunday Night" and "Antoine" just literally reduced me to (fleeting) tears. I am loving this.

So would you consider this album preferable to Microcastle in terms of an introduction to this type of sound? For now I can only get one or the other.

I think that this record is infinitely better, but I'd still get Microcastle. It's two records for the price of one, and does sound EXACTLY like this. The songs are just different.

So their 2nd LP has leaked and so far it's an early candidate for my favorite album of the year. Really fantastic. I expect this album to get a lot of positive reviews.

The release date is April 2nd. If anyone would like to hear it early, PM me.
