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.

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.
