EDITORS’ NOTES

Retreating from the garage snarl of 2013’s Monomania to the gauzy, melodic textures of 2010’s Halcyon Digest, Deerhunter have made their warmest record yet. The psychedelic swoops of “Breaker”, synth pulse of “Ad Astra” and lysergic funk of “Snakeskin” all expertly find the biting point between invention and accessibility. The gorgeous sonics are regularly just a salve for caustic lyrics though, and Bradford Cox’s outsider spirit rages with paranoia and self-laceration throughout.
