With Bradford Cox going temporarily insane and performing "My Sharona" for over an hour
at a show in Minneapolis, it's easy to forget that there are other people in Deerhunter
besides their outspoken (and slightly unstable) frontman. Lockett Pundt is Deerhunter's guitarist (and general multi-instrumentalist) with a solo project, under the nom de plume, Lotus Plaza. We've got a new track from Lotus Plaza, a bit of slickly produced, breezy guitar pop. Sounding like Real Estate's art-house brother, "Strangers" should satisfy everyone still wanting more slick pop as well as those people wanting to see what the next evolution of the subgenre might look like.
