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. 

One of my favourite Deerhunter releases, this is just so much fun to listen to. Takes the best aspects of Microcastle and expands on them really nicely. Also the closing track is a certified BOP. Periodt.

Standout: Circulation
Favs: Rainwater Cassette Exchange, Famous Last Words, Disappearing Ink
Least Fav: Game of Diamonds
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.
