I'm feeling strong Loveless vibes here, but it is nowhere near as classic. It is Deerhunter's most experimental album, creating hypnotic and psychedelic soundscapes on the first half, and more traditional indie and shoegaze on the second half.

Fav track: Octet

Many of the instrumental tracks are completely forgettable.

Absolutely hypnotic. Put me to sleep, and not in the worst way. Very interesting and imaginative.

Certainly deerhunter''s most experimental work. A heap of sonic guitar effects, distorted vocals and lengthy instrumental sections still make this a great listen however. Fans of halcyon digest may find this to be a bit of an adjustment at first, though fans of shoe gaze/ noise rock acts such as MBV and sonic youth will be instantly enthralled.

It was a very strong listen. Smooth riveting guitar leads, psychedelic wandering cleans vocals, thumping bass, the occasional distorted analogous ambient track. Everything you could want from a Deerhunter album is here.

Best track: Cyptograms.

If you like this I recommend Monomania from their discography it's the most similar.
