When you assume ...


Letters to the Editor

M.G. Oxsen
I do not have a problem with evolution; I have a problem with those Darwinian evolutionists who then make the assumption that life just “happened.” And it is insulting to accuse someone’s comments of being ignorant just because they disagree with you or hold different ideas.

Dan Deacon — America


Electronica

Joshua Boydston
Lots of adjectives can be used to describe mad-pop scientist Dan Deacon’s back catalog: zany, fun, disorienting, loud, clashing, dysfunctional and dizzying.

Horse Thief — Grow Deep, Grow Wild


Indie

Zach Hale
Psychedelic folk isn’t new, but it certainly is increasing in popularity. The surge has brought such weird-minded acts as Grizzly Bear and Animal Collective to the forefront, but the downside to any emerging movement is that it inevitably will seduce those who seek to piggyback on its success.

LETTERS


Letters to the Editor

Marty Zumpfe
Apparently, fear and the need to be superhuman is alive and well in Hollywood. Notice how many movies of superheroes have come out recently. In 1970-80, only four superhero movies were released, compared to 115 released since 2001.

Horse Thief – Fear in Bliss


Indie

Zach Hale
Listening to Horse Thief’s previous release — the haphazardly melodramatic Grow Deep, Grow Wild — felt like a chore. Whatever potential the Oklahoma City folk-pop act demonstrated on the EP was obscured behind a formulaic, contrived and ultimately hollow cloud. But it at least offered a glimmer of promise for a band consisting of, frankly, five pretty talented dudes. Critics saw it; the band’s management saw it; its current label, Bella Union, saw it; and its increasingly fervid fan base saw it.
