Deerhunter Rainwater Cassette Exchange EP on 12" Vinyl
Certainly not a group to rest on their laurels, Deerhunter delivered five new tracks on this extended play originally issued in 2009. This wasn't some stop-gap release between albums, or mere leftovers from 2008's Microcastle either, but an all new session. The band loves the EP format and thinks it does not get the respect it deserves.
Hell, some bands arguably work best in the EP format, think Cocteau Twins or My Bloody Valentine, and now maybe we should add Deerhunter to that list. That's certainly not to say their albums aren't great, but with 2007's Fluorescent Grey and Rainwater Cassette Exchange, a lucid argument can be made that minute for minute, and hook for hook, their two EPs can't be matched for visceral energy and pop smarts!
