The Muse: Deer Tick, “Main Street”

Deer Tick

John McCauley’s disgusted. “I can’t eat, I can’t use my mouth,” he sneers through his ultra-lysergic vocal bite, which has been Deer Tick’s signature audio tic since the timeless-sounding 20-somethings first got their shit together for an album. But they still sound nice and nasty, even on the well-worn “Be My Baby” beat.
