random question... what is your favorite deerhunter album?
I really have to say Halcyon Digest. Cryptograms and Microcastle are both great in their own right, but Digest just elicits so many feelings in me that the previous two don’t. It’s also the most consistent.
Never really cared that much for Turn It Up, Faggot.
Nah man. Just saying I hadn’t gotten the same viiiibes from his new stuff. His verse on “Super Rich Kids” threw me off at first, but I’ve come to really dig they way he lazily slops around his lines on it. It gives the song great character, methinks.
“Rule No. 9: Have adventures. The Hemingway mode was in ascendancy for decades before it was eclipsed by trendy fabulist “exercises.” The pendulum is swinging back, though, and it’s going to knock these effete eggheads right out of their Aeron chairs. Keep ahead of the curve. Get out and see the world. It’s not going to kill you to butch it up a tad. Book passage on a tramp steamer. Rustle up some dysentery; it’s worth it for the fever dreams alone. Lose a kidney in a knife fight. You’ll be glad you did.”—
