    Whoops, whenever I see a dancing shake my eyes tend to glaze over the corresponding post.

    Speaking of, I listened to Halcyon Digest front to back today for the first time in awhile.

    Helicopter creeps me out now. The combination of what Pitchfork said about the song (how it's about a Russian girl caught up in sex slavery or some shit) and the rumors of Bradford being molested when he was little add up to it being a much different and weirder listening experience for me now than it was last year.
    7/30 - Shabazz Palaces - Roxy (?)
    7/31 - Hamilton Leithauser - Echo (?)
    8/01 - Ceremony/Nothing - Roxy (?)
    8/06 - Herbie Hancock - Hollywood Bowl (?)
    8/07 - Haim - Wiltern (?)

    You should buy the album in some form to get the full context for the song. It's based on a Dennis Cooper short story that they reprint in the liner notes. And it's about a Russian prostitute, but he's definitely a he.

    New live album streaming on Rhapsody. It's okay. The SoHo one is definitely superior. For some reason, on this recording and the one at SoHo, Desire Lines doesn't sound all that great live.
    http://www.rhapsody.com/deerhunter/rhapsody-original-2

    According to Pitchfork, this is the setlist but Hazel St. is after Desire Lines and Revival is after Don't Cry:
    01 Wash Off
    02 Desire Lines
    03 Don't Cry
    04 Nothing Ever Happened
    05 Helicopter
    06 He Would Have Laughed

    I don't think they've pegged Desire Lines live yet.

    If anyone hasn't picked up the Memory Boy 7" (RSD release), Rhino in Claremont discounted their remaining stock to $3.99.

    They don't have it for sale online, shucks. I should probably find that on Discogs or ebay before it is all gone.

    Got one on Ebay, from JorgeC. Small world!

    The boy with the golden touch continues to have just that. Here's the first song released from the upcoming Atlas Sound album, and it's absolutely gorgeous:

    7/31 - Hamilton Leithauser - Echo (?)
    8/01 - Ceremony/Nothing - Roxy (?)

    At this point, that should be expected. Bradford's my favorite songwriter around right now.

    Another new one: "Oh, Ricky":


    NPR's "All Songs Considered" played a 4th new song "Mona Lisa" from the album a couple weeks ago that was pretty much pure pop rock. Minimal effects. Here's an older version:

    I'm glad Mona Lisa is making it out of the Bedroom Databank, I'll admit I like it, its pretty catchy.

    I'm digging Parallax so far, although it isn't anything spectacular for me. Mona Lisa is a quite different version compared to the Bedroom Databank, I prefer the Databank version because it is a lot more toned down.

    Parallax is growing on me in a big way. It sounds like Bradford took the mood of Halcyon Digest and retreated further into the sorrow and desire for the past. It's a very lonely and resigned album, and it sounds like fall.

    Here is a new interview with Bradford Cox done by Spin.

    He likes to talk about his loneliness.

    I think Lockett Pundt has a new side project album coming out soon. Might be an unofficial hiatus situation.
