Song of the Day: Deerhunter - Never Stops

I bought Deerhunter's Cryptograms (debut) album based on its review in Pitchfork, but I never really spent that much time with it.  Microcastle, on the other hand, affected me immediately and has become one of my favorite albums of the last few years.  It also confirms that I need to reassess their first album.  The first side is a murderer's row of quality songs, but "Never Stops" is probably my favorite.  The main guitar line wouldn't have been out of place on a Police album, and the chorus sounds like a catchier version of My Bloody Valentine.  Also love the way the song starts and stops (hence the title?)
