Deerhunter's fantastic Halcyon Digest has been in almost constant rotation on my iPod over the past few weeks. Super-dreamy pop songs, bathed in lush atmospherics, it's easily my favorite record of 2010. So far at least. Songs like Fountain Stairs and Helicopter (below) are highlights.
They're playing in LA on Monday night, however the tickets are selling on Stubhub for around $250, a bit too much for me.
