Deerhunter has perfected its "ambient punk" over the course of four full-lengths and a pair of EPs; there probably hasn't been a band since Radiohead to seamlessly marry modern technology with flesh-and-blood rock and roll this well. Bradford Cox—the consummate music geek and mastermind—takes the lo-fi bedroom noise of his Atlas Sound project and works it into some of the best garage pop of the last five years. Deerhunter's latest Halcyon Digest is chock-full of pop hooks and ambient bleeps—sounds that would seem out of place in the hands of anyone else. But Cox shouldn't get all of the credit; guitarist-vocalist Lockett Pundt delivers the album's best six minutes with "Desire Lines." Live, the band is always a force to be reckoned with. MARK LORE
