Flourescent Grey suggests Deerhunter will continue to captivate for years to come.

  • Deerhunter - Fluorescent Grey
Label: Kranky

Deerhunter's second record, Cryptograms, was an enthralling splurge of sound. As sonically relentless as Liars, yet more intimate than Funeral-era Arcade Fire, it left critics drooling - and new EP Fluorescent Grey is a further extension of this dualistic glory. The title track's harrowing piano unfolds into grinding J&MC dreaminess whilst Dr. Glass is a psychedelic whirl of mellow bass-groove. Like New's transient purr is the EP's standout moment; cajoling the listener into a synth-led trance before melting into Wash Off's shamanic racket. Unsurprisingly recorded during Cryptogram's final mix, Fluorescent Grey suggests Deerhunter will continue to captivate for years to come. [Billy Hamilton]
