Over the past few years Deerhunter has transformed from a noisy and polished post-punk band to essentially one of the best garage rock bands around. We got a taste on 2010's excellent Halcyon Digest, and with their latest, Monomania, Bradford Cox & Co. have gone deeper into the dilapidated garage inhabited by bands like Thee Oh Sees and Sic Alps. Cox is an unapologetic music sponge, and his lyrics veer from brash whimsy to autobiography on "Punk (La Vie Antérieure)," whose sinewy guitar line recalls Deerhunter's earlier work. But even when Cox wants to grip and rip, it's always elegant. MARK LORE
