Re: Deerhunter - Monomania (5/7)

Quote:
After one listen (with select tracks revisited), good. Easily their least "experimental" album yet, despite all the "avant-garde" hype surrounding it. Only 2 songs are actually in mono ("Pensacola" and "Nitebike"). Only the title track is longer than 5 minutes. Not as varied as Halcyon Digest, nor does it get as unabashedly pretty.

Here are some thoughts, track-by-track:

"Neon Junkyard" - total breeders/amps vibes, sounds very much like an outtake from Pacer (if you like Deerhunter and haven't heard Pacer by the Amps, get on that right now, son)

"Leather Jacket II" - Noisy, trashy strut-rawk. reminds me of "Coronado" from Halcyon Digest. no sax though

"The Missing" - only Pundt-sung song on the album. Pretty, sparkly guitars, humming synths on the chorus + odd, elegant melodic choices I can get behind

"Pensacola" - shit-kickin' lo-fi country rock, steel guitar, TWANG. Crazy Horse vibes.

"Dream captain, TAKE ME ON YR SHIP"
gritty, glammy, more music to strut to, swag swag swag

"Blue agent" - by the numbers

"T.H.M." - sleek, gentle dual guitar arpeggios, cheery yet off-kilter music at odds with dark lyrics about mental illness and [possibly] repressed homosexuality.

"Sleepwalking" - breezy, wistful garage pop w/ surfy guitars. nice.

"Back To Middle" - oh yeah. the most immediately catchy song, fantastic riff, beautiful melody, righteous, triumphant, concise, plus twinkling wurlitzers!!!! (wish they had used more of these on the album). If I had to guess the first single, I'd say either this or "Sleepwalking"

"Monomania" - the noisiest, longest song on the album, once again in sleazy "Coronado" mode. Outro, over an ever-intensifying guitar squall: "MONO-MONOMANIA, MONO-MONOMANIA, MONO-MONOMANIA, MONO-MONOMANIA, MONO-MONOMANIA," etc, etc.

"Nitebike" - Bradford solo acoustic, lo fi, raw echo-drenched vocals. Wordless falsetto interludes. Good if you're into that kind of thing. Works well after the noise-monster title track.

Finally: "For a month I was punk/I remembered all my junk"
"For a year I was queer/ I had conquered all my fear/ Not alone anymore/But I found it such a bore"

Soundalike Pitchfork is getting off the Deerhunter train.
