iTunes Review

On Lockett Pundt's second solo outing as Lotus Plaza, it becomes increasingly clear how critical his contributions really are to his other bands (Deerhunter and Atlas Sound). Spooky Action works in a vein similar to those outfits, with pop melodies and sensibilities at the heart of music wrapped in layers of fuzz and warmth. There's reverb on the guitars and vocals, along with restrained distortion and effects (appropriately lighthanded, since the feel here is decidedly ethereal). Tight, sturdy percussion is the grounding force. The crisp snares and chiming guitar on "Strange" anchor the wispy tune, and the weighty kickdrum gives bounce to the shimmering tambourines and gathering clouds of guitar on "Out of Touch." One strength of this set is its range of feeling, from the artfully thoughtful "Jet Out of the Tundra," to the Yo La Tengo–style gentleness of the lovely "Dusty Rhodes." Lotus Plaza's music complements the best of Deerhunter and Atlas Sound.

Customer Reviews

He's the better half of Deerhunter songwriting. Glad to see he's come out with such a solid solo offering.

Deerhunter continues to deliver either solo or collectively. Spring has officially arrived.

Its amazing how he has progressed as a song writer. He's bending notes as he sings and the vocals are much more prominent than his last album. New confidence and stellar music! This guys music has a air of vintage tube amps swirling through electronic tracers. The tempo varies as does the musical content. Nice acoustic closer and the first couple tracks melt in your ears.

The project of Deerhunter guitarist/vocalist Lockett Pundt, Lotus Plaza recalls some of his other band's shoegaze-tinged hazy experimentalism and bursts of lucid guitar pop, but takes those sounds in directions influenced by '50s and '60s pop and '80s post-punk. Though he played in several groups during high school, Pundt wasn't in any serious bands until he met Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox in college and joined the fold. Pundt began recording as Lotus Plaza in 2007, playing most of the instruments...
