Deerhunter | Why Hasn't Everything Already Disappeared?

In their catchy, albeit haunting, new record, Deerhunter raises a question about the state of society, (Why hasn't everything already disappeared?) but they don't exactly answer it. In fact, they dodge the question altogether and jump from track to track in an unpredictable pattern, leaving behind even more questions. Great album.
