Deerhunter’s fourth studio album invokes the blissed-out sonic textures and stark beauty of 4AD’s roster back in its late-‘80s/early-‘90s heyday, while retaining the innovative and successful sound experiments associated with Kranky Records. Halcyon Digest is a dreamier-sounding affair than preceding recordings, beginning with “Earthquake,” a slowly layered composition where gauzy electric guitars are looped alongside lazy beats and dive-bomb leads reminiscent of Slowdive’s first two EPs. “Don’t Cry” shifts gears to lock into a more '60s inspired sound where fuzzy distortion and reverb add a bygone teenage-delinquent vibe that the band carry into “Basement Scene,” which sounds largely inspired by The Everlys’ “All I Have To Do Is Dream.” The drop-dead gorgeous “Desire Lines” is everything a good indie-rock song should be; catchy, clever, demure, melodic, rough-around-the-edges and confident in the balance of familiarity and forward thinking ideas. Dedicated to Jay Reatard, “He Would Have Laughed” unpredictably eschews obvious garage-rock trappings for beautifully haunting tiers of tonalities and lyrical nostalgia.
