Pitchfork

The resulting 2xCD set captures urgent and imaginative songs that reorganize 4AD haze, off-kilter indie pop, crashing garage-punk, forward-leaning krautrock, and hypnotic Kranky ambience into a singular-sounding call-to-arms.

Microcastle is authentic Deerhunter. The drums, the hypnotizing guitar riffs, the impressive bass, all of it is just so captivating. It reminds me a lot of a more improved Cryptograms. Deerhunter unleashes their full potential on this one.

An actual decent indie album which is not boring or generic overrated on this website but still good.

Uno de los álbumes del último tiempo que indudablemente hizo la diferencia en marco del indie rock, tiene que ser Microcastle. Su figura constructiva de sueños mojados, con ese descaro suave, da indicios de que el propósito principal es cerrar los ojos, y buscar el bello camino de la sensualidad enteramente inocente.

one of the greatest albums of all time.

Pretty good album with shoegaze and dream pop orientations. Even though there are a lot of amazing tracks in the album it still has some disappointing songs. Microcastle is great, but unfortunately not really memorable.

Favs: Cover Me(Slowly), Agoraphobia, Neither Of Us Uncertainly
