Halcyon Digest

America Canada following the massive critical success of deerhunter's last album 'microcastle' which mojo suggested could be 4ad's best release in a decade expectations are feverishly inflated for the new deerhunter release luckily the atlanta quartet seem to operate in their own realm away from the rolling cycles of pressure and praise and it shows in 'halcyon digest' which is an impressively selfassured work with a level of detail and care that belies its twoweek recording process deerhunter are one of those rare acts that it is nigh on impossible to second guess what they record apparently depends greatly on their mood at the time rather than any great preplanning and so it should be no great shock that 'halcyon digest' is a world away from the frenetic wall of distorted guitars that at times defined 'microcastle' indeed if this album resembles anything it is more the atlas sound album 'logos' recorded by deerhunter main man bradford cox post'microcastle' in other words 'halcyon digest' is noticeable more calm tuneful and reliant on electronics and acoustics than 'microcastle' especially on album closer 'he would have laughed' recorded in tribute to jay reatard
