song of the day/night: deerhunter “helicopter”

when i first heard about deerhunter, my kitten ears thought the band was “beerhunter”. clearly, hours of googling yielded no music related results. it was then when i realized it was “dear”, not “beer”. a little disappointed and confused, i continued my crawling of the internet. but what i discovered was not at all what i was expecting. turns out i was still incorrect. it was “deer”, not “dear“. jesus…

so here i am… soul-deep in deerhunter’s new album “halycon digest“. having explored “cryptograms” and “microcastle” as well as, i am convinced that deerhunter have hit it! “halycon digest” is their “reign in blood“, their “master of puppets“, their “merriweather post pavillion“…

the song that has captured my senses all day has been “helicopter”, a song that bleeds of bradford cox‘s soul–a tourtured and lonesome soul at the gates of end times. you get a sense of the innards of his emptiness. its moving, touching. musically, its every bit his solo project, atlas sound.

who’d a thunk so much emptiness could yield so much soul? immerse yourself…
