DEERHUNTER – “Rainwater
Cassette Exchange” EP
I heard some murmurs through the grapevine that
could be interesting to check out. So
when I came across a copy I decided to check it out and make up my own
mind. The latest from Deerhunter is
medium tempo guitar
fueled indie rock fueled by acoustic guitar, layered arrangements and an
introspection at times that draws in a range of elements from psychedelia to
folk and back. Deceptively low key, the
music guides the listener along until the last track takes you by surprise in a
shocking (yet cohesive) way. Deerhunter
have created an EP that fits neatly within some of the current indie flavors of
the moment but adds their own spin to them.
Consider me pleasantly surprised.
