DEERHUNTER

From Atlanta, Georgia, the origins of Deerhunter can be traced back to
when frontman Bradford Cox first met guitarist Lockett Pundt at high
school. Years later Bradford met Moses Archuleta and started jamming
together. Other contributors to Deerhunter since its establishment in
2001 include Josh Fauver, Colin Mee and Whitney Petty. The current
incarnation consists of Cox, Pundt and Archuleta plus bassist Josh Mckay
and guitarist Frankie Broyles.

Deerhunter’s first album was a lo-fi experiment not initially intended
for the wider world, but appeared in 2005 on a local Atlanta label,
Stickfigure. Although officially untitled, it has since become known as
Turn It Up, a phrase that doesn’t actually appear on the sleeve
but is an insult that Cox claimed was often thrown at the band during
their early gigs. Their next album, Cryptograms (2006), was generally
considered to be their real debut and as such things started to get
serious for the band. They had moved to fêted Chicago indie, Kranky
(Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Low, Stars Of The Lid), and the world
outside was starting to pay attention.

Then in mid-2008, Deerhunter and Kranky signed a deal with 4AD, allowing
them to finally release music outside the US and the band’s next move
was to prove epic in more than just musical terms.?? Recorded over the
course of a week at the Rare Book Studios in Brooklyn, NY, the Can and
Wire-inspired Microcastle (2008) was to propel them to further heights.
However, the album leaked four months before release, leading the band
back to the studio to record Weird Era Cont., an album in its own right
added as a bonus disc to make Microcastle a 25-track colossus. Not
content with such prolificacy, the band announced a new five track EP,
Rainwater Cassette Exchange, in 2009 and that its release would coincide
with the band’s extensive European, Japanese and Australian tour in May
and June.??

Displaying few signs of slowing down, Halcyon Digest, the band’s fourth
studio album was released in September 2010. Remaining in their native
Georgia to piece together the album, Halcyon Digest took just a few
weeks to complete. The recording sessions took place at Chase Park
Transduction in Athens with Ben H. Allen helping to co-produce the
album, while final track, ‘He Would Have Laughed’, was recorded
separately by Bradford Cox at NOTOWN SOUND in Marietta. To announce the
release, the band fully embraced the DIY mindset of their New Wave
heroes from the 70’s and 80’s with a Cox-designed, cut-and-paste Xeroxed
flyer. It’s with these kind of approaches that Deerhunter continue to
widen their sphere of influence and impress with each subsequent
release.

After a brief hiatus, during which time Bradford Cox and Lockett Pundt
released their own albums as Atlas Sound and Lotus Plaza respectively, a
new Deerhunter line-up (with additions of bassist Josh Mckay and
guitarist Frankie Broyles) reconvened in January 2013 at Rare Book
Studio in Brooklyn, New York. Produced by Nicholas Vernhes and Bradford
Cox and recorded in the dead of night, Deerhunter’s new longplayer
Monomania will be released in May. Monomania finds the group recalling
its scrappy punk aesthetic; a perfect nocturnal garage rock album full
of the layered and hazy vintage guitar sounds that define them.

DIRTY PROJECTORS

THE NEW SELF-TITLED ALBUM does everything we want and expect from Dirty
Projectors -- but in a way that we never could have imagined or
anticipated. In a career of surprising conceptual gambits, unexpected
stylistic shifts, and continually changing lineups -- this is, as DJ
Khaled says, "ANOTHER ONE"!

A PROTEAN, SHAPE-SHIFTING CHAMELEON, Dave Longstreth, the founding
member and sole constant Projector, goes where the music is: he builds
his band and arrangements around the songs he's writing in that moment.

'Dirty Projectors' is a BREAKUP ALBUM. These songs, coming out of a
place of heartbreak & depression, began as private gestures of
catharsis & healing. DL couldn't see any future for Dirty
Projectors, much less imagine these as Dirty Projectors songs, until he
went to LA, where Rick Rubin urged him that this is exactly what they
are.
