Pitchfork

Deerhunter toured with Nine Inch Nails this summer, making a stop at Colorado's famed Red Rocks Amphitheater. That canyon found the Atlanta noise-rock quintet at a precipice. In the few months prior, Deerhunter had added a new guitarist, Whitney Petty, to replace the departed Colin Mee. Lead singer Bradford Cox had released his debut solo album, Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel, under the name Atlas Sound. The band's third album, Microcastle, and its would-be surprise bonus disc, Weird Era Cont., had both leaked half a year before they were due in stores. U

nimpressed NIN fans were writing blog posts comparing Cox to Geddy Lee.

A lot of parts seemed a bit TOO slow but then again I'm a bit tired--
still a very climatic and hazardous album at times; "Nothing Ever Happened" was stupendous.

sublime indie excellence, very talented songwriters and musicians, an album of mood swings, a group that should be huge
