Little Kids-Deerhunter

Deerhunter has at least one track on every release that worms its way immediately into my grey matter. Usually relating to some sort of repeated, advancing refrain. Some noisy bits with a chimey, insistent trudge throught the indie snow. This is from their latest, Microcastle, out just this week. I got it at eMusic, who I am convinced keeps moving up the date of my downloads evaporating each month. I think the album is decent, but this is the track that stood out to me.

I only put it under “shoegaze” because I think the feeling is of that genre if not the aesthetic.

    Wow. I was kinda unimpressed during the first 90 seconds or so and it was fading into background and then the song started to build around the 2 minute mark and get denser and noisier. Now it has wormed its way into my head on the first listen. It’s really good. I guess I will have to buy this CD and add it to the massive tower of unopened CDs that curses my bedroom…
