Divine Providence by Deer Tick
Released: Oct 2011
Label: Partisan Records
On Deer Tick's fourth release, Divine Providence, the quintet sounds positively rambunctious from the get-go: "I got a lust for life/ and a dangerous mind" is John McCauley's first guttural utterance in the pub-rockin' sing-along "The Bump." "You f*ckin' douchebag," he then mutters at the top of The Stones-ish "Funny Word," which is followed by a Hendrix-like mangling of "The Star-Spangled Banner" in "Something to Brag About." Soon, though, the booze-fueled antics wind down, and slow-burning ballads (including the strings-touched "Electric") start to reveal Deer Tick at their most reflective.
