Everybody's dying just to get the disease. Confidential to the celebs in surgical masks: If there's a real pandemic, we're all already born with it. No, not swine flu, bird flu, monkey pox, SARS, or West Nile virus. Not even anthrax, that post-9/11, pre-Iraq War worry most people appeared to forget overnight. The names of the diseases may change, but the panics they generate all represent the same thing: We're gonna die. And we couldn't be more terrified.

5 Songs. Better than 2 studio albums. Bradford (and Lockett and Josh and Moses), you never cease to amaze me. This EP is good from beginning to end. Game of Diamonds might be one of the most moving songs I've ever heard from Deerhunter. Overall, a really impressive EP.

'Rainwater Cassette Exchange' is Deerhunter's most straightforward release yet. They're still maintaining their shoegaze-inspired sound from 'Microcastle,' but now they're using shorter song lengths and more straightforward song structures. With that, we get some of their most catchiest songs. It's five great tracks in 15 minutes. It's just what I want from an EP.
