Riff: Deerhunter – “Monomania”

Apr 3, 2013

If you can’t send me an angel/Send me something else instead

from Monomania lyrics by Deerhunter

Whatever broke Cox‘s dreampop spell here rears its beautifully ugly head and shreds a chainsaw guitar garage jam so perfectly fit for the man’s obsessive narrative, the term ‘monomania’ notwithstanding, that whatever he’s calling upon, music Gods, don’t give it to him – let this maniacal run last.
