Lotus Plaza - Out Of Touch
Deerhunter guitarist Lockett Pundt launches the second album of his solo group, Lotus Plaza, with Spooky Action At A Distance. Pundt’s presence in Deerhunter’s music, while certainly evident, mixes into the sonic fabric and makes his part more important in the context of the whole. Pundt retains his signature sound of strong guitar hooks smeared with a haze and reverb distance in this side project.
What’s evident with Spooky Action is that Lotus Plaza has achieved their own coherence with strong, complete song writing. Spooky Action is decidedly the best of the two albums released from Lotus Plaza, with Pitchfork’s Ian Cohen calling it “... one of the strongest indie rock records of the year so far.” JJ’s Bohemia scores yet another coup bringing the band to the stage Friday night in the early stages of their U.S. tour.
