Deer Tick – Jumpstarting

I was asked if I wanted to come see Deer Tick at the splendid Islington Assembly Hall on Tuesday by my friend Doug. He thought I might like them. And he thought right. They had just the right mix of irreverence and craft in what they do live to make them a great listen to someone who’d not heard them before.

Since the gig I’ve been listening constantly to the two records they released last year – Deer Tick Vol. 1 and Deer Tick Vol. 2 – which demonstrate the different kind of songs they write. ‘Jumpstarting’ is off Deer Tick Vol. 2, the “rockier” record of the two.
