Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Audio Mixer: Brian Foote.
Muze PNote In 2008, Deerhunter fans were presented nearly an embarrassment of riches with the release of the group's third album, MICROCASTLE, its pre release "leaked" companion disc, WEIRD ERA CONT., and front man Bradford Cox's solo project debut as Atlas Sound (LET THE BLIND LEAD THOSE WHO CAN SEE BUT CANNOT FEEL). With a good deal of Deerhunter-related material appearing on the band's web blog in 2008, anticipation surrounding the release of THE FLOODLIGHT COLLECTIVE, the full-length debut of Lotus Plaza (guitarist and co-songwriter Lockett Pundt's solo project), came as little surprise.
Muze PNote While the album doesn't stray far from the gauzy, ambient dream pop of Deerhunter and Atlas Sound, it comes across as a far more focused affair than either of those group's efforts. Rooted in Pundt's adoration of the wall-of-sound vocal harmonies of `50s Brill Building songwriters and the hypnotic, reverb-drenched haze of shoegazers like the Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine, the songs are full of shimmering and opalescent melodies that teeter on the edge of something inchoate and chaotic. From the chiming, layered melodies of "Whiteout," which gently accumulate into a blizzard of white noise wash out, to the cresting surf-rock dissonance of "Sunday Night," with its circling microtones and billowing waves of guitar distortion, Lotus Plaza create blissful pop ambience that celebrates the beauty of sound unhinged.

Producer: Brian Foote; Brian Foote
