The early days of Deerhunter were spent sinking deep into the psychedelic void, with distorted guitars swirling around Broadcast-inspired rhythmic curiosities. Cryptograms is a mix of cerebral ambient wallpaper and visceral trance dream pop, with the supplementary Fluorescent Grey EP working as arguably their best and most concise work, a perfect marriage of their melodic inclinations and their self-sabotaging fuzz. The messy and crucial band they used to be.

8/10 Brian Staff review, 22 September 2010

Digging this trippy album from DEERHUNTER on Kranky called 'Cryptograms'. It's initially mercurial space rock falling into passages of hugely engaging beatless sound, cascading walls of guitar effects layered in a very 'Loveless' style. Then it's jerky freeform no/nu wave & disjointed punk funk with muffled vocals buried under intense sonic squalls of noise. I can hear This Heat definately. It draws heavily on sprawling psychedelia, stunted garage rock & beautiful ambience (oooh ya cannae beat a spot o' trickling water to sooth yr soul!) whilst the band ebbs & flows in & out of the mix like the drummer needs a spliff break every 5 minutes.There's more lucid sounding harmonic rock shapesto come later proving they're an eclectic bunch. Overall they're a mesmerising bunch of trip'eads these people. A very engrossing & multi levelled listen is 'Cryptograms'. It can work merely as aural wallpaper or be a deep meditative journey depending on yer mood/patience. A nice canon shot from the Kranky head massive.
