NO RIPCORD

Halcyon Digest goes by like a breeze, and when it’s finished there’s nothing better to do than play it again.

92
PITCHFORK

Halcyon Digest is a record about the joy of music discovery, the thrill of listening for the first time to a potential future favorite, and that sense of boundless possibility when you're still innocent of indie-mainstream politics and your personal canon is far from set.

80
DROWNED IN SOUND

Yet I think conversely it’s Cox’s inability to totally connect to an audience that makes him such a spectacularly special songwriter.

80
TINY MIX TAPES

As difficult as it might be to find fresh plaudits with which to laud Deerhunter, they continue to deserve every single redundant bit of acclaim.

80
MUSICOMH

Halcyon Digest is a triumph of multilayered nuance, and repeated listens reveal its genius buried just beyond the obvious.

60
POPMATTERS

Halcyon Digest is, to my mind, the best we’ve seen from Deerhunter, and a hint that their best is still to come.
