Rainwater Cassette Exchange

Song: Rainwater Cassette Exchange
Artist: Deerhunter
Album: Rainwater Cassette Exchange EP
Label: Kranky Records
Notes: none
Analysis: I don’t have a lot to say about the band Deerhunter. They’re another band whose music, despite critical acclaim, I’ve never been able to get into. I mean, I’ve enjoyed a handful of songs, but never a full album. ‘Rainwater Cassette Exchange’ is one of their songs that I can get into, though. Some sample lyrics:

Do you believe, in love at first sight?
Oh yes my son, I did the first time.
Oh yes my son, I did before I died.
And now it does me no good,
on the other side.

Wavy and relaxing, the song drips along at an easy going pace like the rainwater in it’s title. If you’ve never heard a Deerhunter song in your life, you could do worse than checking this one first to feel them out.
