Deerhunter's music is like the sonic translation of that hazy moment between dreaming and full consciousness. And on Halcyon Digest, Bradford Cox fittingly writes a lot about dreams and memories, and how they all end up muddling together over time. A similar idea comes alive in the music, where subtle layers develop and then fuse. The light dusting of fuzz on songs like "Revival" and "Desire Lines" allows the pop undertones to float just a little higher, while tracks like "Earthquake," "Sailing" and "Helicopter" start out sparse before melting into an underwater world of bubbling guitars.
