I know the critics love them and as a die hard indie fan I fell obliged to listen to them, but I just cannot get into Deerhoof. I mean, Dear Tick. I mean, Deerhunter. I can admire them and appreciate that they evolve with each album, but I tend to listen to an album, like it, but immediately forget it. "Monomania" has been billed as their rock album and has more of a garage clatter without forsaking the somewhat gauzy, fuzzy haze that marks Bradford Cox's vocals and delivery. "Pensacola" is the standout track. Deerhunter is a little too arty though to be a convincing grungy rock band and you'd be be better off listening to fellow Georgians Black Lips or Ty Segall or Thee Oh Sees or. . .Yeah, they're fine, but I just can't get into them.

Since forming Deerhunter as a raw ambient-punk outfit 12 years ago, Bradford Cox has turned an obsession with rock & roll excess and escapism – and all the fluid-spattered, cross-dressing onstage moments that such provokes – into a reckless, fascinating catalog. The band's sixth LP honors Cox's preoccupation and his chameleonic qualities: from opening with a craggy groan that transitions into a glamrock-garage assault ("Neon Junkyard") to grumbling through low-fi folk ("Nitebike") to slipping into a soft, psych-pop reverie ("The Missing") that flows directly from 2010's lovely Halcyon Digest. There is clearly no quietude in Cox's frantic mind, but his obsession yields beauty.
