Review: Two years ago, Diiv founder Z Cole Smith checked himself into rehab for "long haul inpatient treatment" for unspecified substance abuse. It's this treatment that provides the backdrop to "Deceiver", the band's third album (which, incidentally, is also the first written by all four members). Musically, it's a typically emotionally charged and glassy-eyed affair, offering tracks that touch on shoegaze, Pixies-style indie-rock, post-grunge and more. Lyrically, Smith's personal "resurrection" and experiences of rehabilitation play a key role, with many of the songs narratives offering a dialogue between old and new versions of himself. This particular limited edition version of the album is beautifully packaged, too, coming on marbled grey vinyl with various inserts and obi-strips.
