Amoeba Review

Dave Cunningham, Hollywood 04/03/2012

Somewhere along the line, God or the Devil or someone like that made a deal with the guys from Deerhunter. In exchange for their souls, they got the ability to make the BEST MUSIC EVER! Lotus Plaza is Deerhunter's guitarist Lockett Pundt, and I'm not worthy! Every song is so good it hurts.


Billy Gil, Hollywood 12/17/2012

What’s that stupid line about “it’s the quiet ones you have to worry about”? I guess that’s true of Lockett Pundt, the guitarist and sometimes singer/songwriter for Deerhunter. Though frontman Bradford Cox garners most of the attention, Pundt’s guitar playing — subtle, simple but not simplistic, always pleasurable yet somehow elusive — is a huge part of the sound that makes up one of the era’s more beloved bands. That couldn’t be more clear on the latest release from Lotus Plaza, Pundt’s solo/side project. Whereas on previous release The Floodlight Collective Pundt created alluring but overly spacey atmosphere, Spooky Action’s songs come through more clearly, though a haze of effect shrouds everything in mystery. It doesn’t grab you at first. Give the songs more than a handful of listens though, like the My Bloody Valentine-style guitar pop of “White Galactic One” or heartfelt noise ballad “Monoliths,” and you’ll be coming back to it more than you realize. It becomes like an old friend you might take for granted until you’re actually in their presence. Definitely one of my most-listened-to albums of 2012.
