Deer Tick

...we've been hearing about Providence, RI outfit Deer Tick for some time now, but until recently just weren't sure how we felt about this band. A little back story helped pique our interest: an 18-year-old John McCauley starts dishing out some home recordings to his friends, earns a little buzz, records War Elephant completely on his own,tours extensively in support of his debut, finally gets enough momentum to bring in longtime friends to be the band. We like stories like this. The newly christened Deer Tick are poised to release their sophomore effort, Born on Flag Day, on Partisan Records June 23. The new album features the fully fleshed-out lineup taking their steps, and we're liking what we hear...

animal-based band names need to go away forever. wolf parade was okay i guess. frog eyes was kind of acceptable. fleet foxes was pretty dumb but the fact their music is amazing made up for it.

deer tick? how about rat rapist? flea masher? dolphin whore?
