Since 2001, Deerhunter - co-founded by Bradford Cox and Moses Archuleta - have produced three LPs and four EPs worth of astonishing “ambient punk” (their own description), picking up devotees and different musicians along the way. Their mantra - "To achieve harmony in bad taste is the height of elegance" (Jean Genet).
Their latest full-length "Microcastle" released late 2008 has received great approval from critics and fans alike. Time Out heaped much praise on it, “(Deerhunter) weave ethereal, wraithlike songs that touch the heights of Flaming Lips, Pavement and My Bloody Valentine,” while Pitchfork scored it an impressive 9.2, citing it to be a "call to arms," and Mojo went as far as saying it "could be 4AD's best release in well over a decade."
