Editorial Reviews

Ladies and gentlemen…

From the band that's been both accurately and inaccurately labeled just about everything this side of Top 40 comes a true-to-form rock-n-roll record. Scratch that, true-to-form is not Deer Tick's style. Let's start over…

Naturally, after so many years of critics praising (and making fun of) them for their "folk" and "country" sounds and hardly ever mentioning the fact that they've also recorded virtually dozens of other kinds of music, the band wanted to make a record that was truer to their live set (which has gained some notoriety): raw, loud, heartfelt, and completely uninterested in whatever the hell the rest of the music industry is up to.

To produce this record. the band recruited the team of Adam Landry and Justin Collins, who produced the debut album of McCauley's side-project Middle Brother. The results are unlike anything you've heard on a Deer Tick album, yet Deer Tick achieves something that is more raw, real, and raucous than anything they have released to date.

Format: MP3 Music
I absolutely love Deer Tick, I have seen them a number of times, and have all of their first three albums, `Born on Flag Day' being my favourite. However, this really is a move in a direction that bigs up the things that take away from their music rather than adds to it, but all is not lost as there are still some great tunes here and some heartfelt moments, even if they are alcohol sodden

First track `The Bump' seems to be a statement of intent extolling the virtues of acting like a child, but the music is totally derivative, with the only saving grace being a honky tonk piano riff. `Funny Word' takes us no further but the playing is tight, with some riffs that any garage band would die for. `Let's all go to the bar', is so bad I have deleted it from my MP3, it just repeats the title as a refrain after every single line. I am sure the joke will wear off after playing it live a few dozen times.

Track 4 takes us to a less rock area, with McCauley taking a break from the lead vocals. `Main Street' is more of what you would expect, great melody, lyrics and delivery, with an homage to sixties drum progression. Then we get `Something To Brag about' and if this ode to the pleasures of wine and Chuck Berry riffs is all there is, then bragging should be the last thing on their mind. `Walkin out the door' actually could fit on a `My Morning Jacket' album, and ain't half bad.

`Now it's your turn' is possibly my favourite, laid back yet earnest and some great lyrics, `Electric' could fit on any of their previous offerings and I hope I will get to see them do it live, as I am sure it will be a show stopper. The last track is `Miss K', and is a simple modern love song, with an Americana twist. Well I say it is the last of twelve songs, but no it is not.

This album seems a lot more divisive than I would have guessed. I was a pretty casual Deer Tick listener last year, I liked their songs, but I couldn't name one if you asked. Then 'The Bump' was leaked, and I loved it so much that I pre ordered the album. The only other song that reaches those heights is Main Street, but I still enjoyed the rest of the album, and replayed it quite a lot. Every song falls into one of two categories. Beer Chanty, or a song that would play in a bar. For instance, The Bump makes for a good call and response chanty, while you can practically hear the tap running and pool balls clapping on Main Street. That's really all you need to know to decide whether you want to buy the album or not.

Aw darn, Deer Tick, I love you; but this album on vinyl - I'm sorry I bought it. This is one of those albums where picking and choosing tracks would be the way to go. Some of the songs just make me cringe and others are incredible. I really love Black Dirt Sessions (The Black Dirt Sessions) and Middle Brother (Middle Brother) - not one song on either album would I change or delete. But Divine Providence, sorry guys, it would have tons of holes if I were building this album.

Partisan records did a very nice job pressing this album. The vinyl is heavy, not certain it is all the way to 180 gram, but it is heavy all the same. The recording is clean and clear, no extraneous pops or pressing defects. The fun part of this album, this is what vinyl is all about, the extra stuff. There is a full two page fold out lyrics sheet - the cover has a great statement on it, "This record was made in the year 2011, you should play this f***er as loud as possible." A card with an MP3 download code from dropexchange is included. And there is a white stiff paper page with a punch out for Deer Tick Divine Providence.

These guys were great on David Letterman. Their performances on Daytrotter are legendary. I'm certain their live performances are incredible. But to leave all kinds of nonsense between tracks is just not much fun to listen to over and over again. Listening to somebody say they are going to puke and then hear them vomit - well the first time, maybe interesting, the second time slightly annoying, and from then on I'd rather skip it. That's darn hard to do on an LP.

I don't get the negative reviews of this album. Divine Providence is easily as good as the previous Deer Tick albums. I guess if your idea of good music is narrowly defined as indie-alt-country then you won't like it. However, contrary to statements by some, there is plenty of depth and solid song writing on this album. I would not classify this as a party album. I think that reviewer was mistakenly writing about an LMFAO album. But it is nice to hear Deer Tick kick some ass on a few songs. Considering the band does whole shows covering Nirvana the rock direction of recent albums shouldn't be a surprise. If the curse words bother you (seriously, one review said this) I'm sure there are lots of great options for you in the Christian rock section.

Really stepping out of the box for deer tick and going more for the "full fledged band" style. It's not the same deer tick with just John and the git box, these songs have some legs! Some are deep, some are for partying, and some are straight inspirational. Great album. And pretty cool to see john and the gang really grow as musicians and have a permanent full time band with their own unique sound.
