The Archer Trilogy Pt. 3

On the final installment of their Archer Trilogy—two albums and an EP culled from sessions held in a remote Swedish cabin—David Lehnberg and Elin Lindfors wig out on elfin electronica, a twitchy, glitchy mix of nightclub gloss and return-to-nature freakiness. Deer Tracks could easily stick to one or the other—the heavier dance bits are positively triumphant, suggesting glow-stick blowouts beneath the Northern Lights—but the world has no shortage of folkie weirdoes or EDM party starters. We need groups capable of tunes like “Red Eyed Zebra,” which goes from mopey 8-bit video game music—imagine Super Mario pining for his princess—to whimsical xylophone-driven kiddie pop. “Come find me,” Lindfors teases. Who can resist?
