Deerhunter?

Thoughts on them?

I am conflicted...I like some of the songs a lot, but others sort of drag out for too long...

That's exactly what I thought of the album. I can understand why people have ranted and raved about it because some of it is excellent, but as a whole it almost puts me to sleep.

I think they're good, but certainly not deserving of the hype that they've gotten. Plus, in a picture of them on Pitchfork one of their members looks like he's about 80 pounds.

Just started getting into this band. At first they didn't do much for me but they are definitely a band that grows on you.

I am seeing them at the ATP gig at Kentish Town with The Black Lips, Deerhoof, Liars and the **** Buttons. Are they good live? Cos' I imagine they are either really good or really bad.

I like them quite a lot, the Fluorescent Grey EP is great too, hopefully going to see them on their tour soon.

lots of new songs from their upcoming album, Microcastle, are now on their myspace. Agoraphobia is really great.

Interesting that they ditched the whole ambient aspect of Cryptograms. But at least now every track on the new album is a song. I guess I'm not used to Deerhunter sounding almost like a conventional band (probably not exactly the right term to use), but they pull it off really well.

I downloaded the free Lights In The Sky: Over North America Tour Sampler of NIN's supporting bands, and they're on it (the song is "Like New"). It's quite good.

The album as a whole really does it for me, but i can only bother to listen one or two tracks as individuals.

i'd love to have it on vinyl, but i don't want to spend the extra money...maybe i'll ask the folks for it.
