Editorial Reviews

This EP arrives on the heels of a well received sophomore LP, 'Cryptograms'. While exploring themes not especially dissimilar, the EP functions in many ways as an epilogue to both the LP and the accompanying well-reported anxiety surrounding its creation. The band now has a clean slate to explore something entirely new in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fluorescent swirl July 24, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I'm not sure what "ambient punk" is. But whatever it is, Deerhunter are doing a pretty good job with it in the well-named "Fluorescent Grey EP" -- four songs of swirling, fuzzy rock'n'roll, that doesn't so much sweep you off your feet as float you on a current.

It opens with a gentle riff and some thumping drums. But as the music grows in complexity into a gentle spare melody, Bradford Cox begins singing somnolently: "I woke up/in the middle of the night/I called out/I called your name/patiently, patiently..." Halfway through, it erupts into a beautiful storm of swirling guitars and ethereal vocals.

It's echoed in the cycling, undulating pop of "Like New," which ends up being pretty haunting all on its own. But Deerhunter tries out other sounds, like the down-to-earth, indiepop melody of "Dr Glass," and the chiming, roiling punky flavour of the finale, "Wash Off."

They may call themselves ambient punk, but Deerhunter's musical style is pretty hard to put a finger on, and even harder to slap a label on. But whatever it is, it's complex and winning enough to be enjoyable, yet atmospheric enough to be memorable -- it's got an eerie, dark edge that doesn't get all blatant about it.

In this EP, their music is not particularly fast or hard -- it has jagged or punky moments, such as the roaring riffs in the title track, or the blazing bassline in "Wash Off." But most of the time the instruments cycle and fuzz, with some solid drums to set the beat -- and a dense fog of piano, ghostly elusive synth, rippling Hammond, bells, and occasionally an odd sample of forest noises and crickets.

Cox has, no doubt about it, a beautiful voice -- he gets buried in the mix a lot, but his smooth vocals still surface, sounding kind of ripply and distorted at times.

5.0 out of 5 stars "so many useless bodies" November 3, 2007
Format:MP3 Music
The first track, "Fluorescent Grey", appears to a fantasy describing a dream about a mysterious dead boy the singer was obsessed with in his youth. (Something about the song gives me the impression that the boy committed suicide.) "You were my god. ...He will never know". The 30-second clip on amazon was taken from the song's introduction. (To my ears, the full song sounds more like "Spring Hall Convert".) You will have to pay $0.99 to hear what the song really sounds like.

It was probably a mistake for the band to shunt these songs off onto an EP. This album is more accessible than Cryptograms. These songs are some of the band's best so far.
