    I may have a new favorite CD for 2010.

    I finally got Deer Hunter's Halcyon Digest after ordering from DeepDiscount.com weeks ago. Not sure what held it up, but it was worth the wait.

    This was self-produced, with a little help from Ben Allen, and it's quite different from their previous records. The sound is very clean, including the vocals, which is quite a contrast to the style on Cryptograms. They used to have lots of crunchy guitars and, well, noise I guess. Not that I didn't like that, but I like this much, much more.

    Whatever description I'm lacking, this is freakin' sweet! I've spun it 4 times already and I don't want it to end. Not one clunker in the 11 tracks. Anybody else digging this?
    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    If you say the word 'gullible' very slowly it sounds just like oranges.

    Deep Discount is still around? I haven't thought about that in a long time. I guess a diet of mostly vinyl + Amazon Prime for those few exceptions will do that to you.

    yea, took awhile to grow on me honestly but I'm really diggin' it now. A lot more sixties and doowopin' feel to it than previous stuff...wear's his record collection a bit more on his sleeve for this one. I just saw them a couple weeks ago and it really turned this album around for me - to see them performed live...an awesome show. I think I still like the earlier ones overall - more atmospheric and noisy but with the pop-gem moments under it all. This one's a nicer listen..see 'em if you get the chance.

    Hey Swish

    I've bookmarked the site. I had no idea that site existed till I read your post. Thanks for sharing and enjoy the music.

    ..but axed the cd in the name, and they offer a lot more than cds. They have a 'free shipping' option on every order, even if it's just one cd, so I always opt for that, and most new releases are less than $13 with no tax. The only issue is the shipping can take 2 or 3 weeks in some cases, like it did for this Deerhunter cd. I don't really care all that much as I never have to have new music RIGHT NOW. I'd rather save the few bucks.

    Look under Music and then LPs (REKKIDS). Not a huge selection, but they do have some. DVDs too. Lots of 'em. I don't often have to look elsewhere for cds either, although I do have to hit Amazon on rare occasion.

    I've been listening to that disc for a couple of weeks now and I enjoy it too. If I had purchased it on vinyl, side 2 would be my favorite by far. There's some great stuff on that disc. Looking like a top 10 for me right now.
