Just catching up on singles we failed to review and here’s one from November well worth hearing for those who like the Vivian Girls and Crystal Stilts. Madrid’s Deers play lo-fi garage-rock whose lack of production sheen is more than balanced by the gusto with which they play. ‘Castigas En El Granero’ (loosely translated as “Grounded In The Barn”) is scratchy, sassy, joyful garage-rock while ‘Between Cans’ is a strummy take on the Velvet Underground, with half-howled vocals that could have been recorded after a night of drinking. This has a simple charm that’s quite addictive and bodes well for them in 2015.
