Deerhunter – ‘Monomania’


Deerhunter have unveiled the raucous title track to their new album ‘Monomania‘, out May 7 through 4AD (see Jimmy Fallon live performance). And its a loud one, kinda like Marc Boland throwing a tantrum on a pedal board. Well, not really… but its an exciting listen. It just gets increasingly more impulsive and out of control. Gotta love rock n’ roll spaz attacks! That’s my thought for the day. Leading man Bradford Cox has said the record is more avante garde, guess we’ll find out next month! *counts the days*

Atlas Sound – 'Amplifiers'

Bradford Cox (of Deerhunter) is releasing his third solo album as Atlas Sound, titled ‘Parallax‘ which will be available via 4AD on November 7. I must admit, the previous album cuts made public haven’t grabbed me as much as I’d like. But ‘Amplifiers’ has a simple playfulness and reminds me a little of Thurston Moore. Perhaps that’s just me!?
