If I'm a sucker for anything, it might just be indie pop music from Georgia. I'm pretty sure that very little other good has come out of that state... I kid! Deerhunter hails from Atlanta, which is weird. I thought dreemy shoegazer music came from Athens and oiled up booty rap came from Atlanta. These guys are seriously messing with my head.

They're messing with my head in another way. On the one hand, this brand of music isn't really an endangered species, and it's not exactly hard to find people doing it fairly well, either. On the other hand, Deerhunter do it exceedingly well on this four-song EP. Walls of sound, noise breakdowns, psychedelia and dancey, heart-beat drums are all here in abundance — yet the band sounds focussed and energized.

A person could do a lot worse than listen to Flourescent Grey. It's a nice, tight jar of honey and a good diversion.
