New Deerhunter release “Monomania”

20130412-103216.jpg

Avant garde rockers Deerhunter have already created buzz for this album by appearing on Jimmy Fallon, frontman Bradford Cox dressed as character Connie Lungpin, complete with black wig and bandaged fingers (an homage to his father who accidentally cut off a finger recently and was at the show). The album is fantastic, their chunky sound even stronger with an added third guitarist. This album sounds cleaner than their other more garage sounding releases, but it doesn’t hurt the sound at all. Tracks like “Blue Agent” and “Back to the Middle” are straight up catchy, while “Monomania” and “Leather Jacket II” show off that fuzz, and “The Missing” is just straight up beautiful. Look for the album to be released May 7th.
