Atlanta art-rockers Deerhunter were operating in a rare space in 2009. Theirs was the confluence of many, many styles – including but not nearly limited to Sonic Youth, the Breeders, Pylon, the Crystals, and Neu! – synthesized and spat out through the cracked kaleidoscope that is the artistic vision of Bradford Cox, arguably reaching its peak on the double LP opus Microcastle/Weird Era Cont.. Their Sub Pop Singles Club entry features reworked versions of two highlights from that weird, weird journey: The a-side, “Vox Celeste 5,” carries all the punch of the version that appears on Weird Era Cont. with an added dose of clarity, while on the flip is “Microcastle Mellow 3,” a swaying, psychedelic, acoustic-led version of Microcastle’s title track.
