I started to accidentally forget how much I like Deerhunter. Luckily this video reminded me and made me think I’m going to be enjoying their new album Halcyon Digest too. It’s out on 4AD on September 28th.


Firstly I’d just like to say sorry for not writing anything up here for a while. Thanks for anyone checking it out and we’ll try and keep you a bit more updated with regular posts. We’ve both been working way too much. However, last night, we didn’t work…. We went to see an unbelievably amazing live show by GRIZZLY BEAR! It was so good. So good.                        Sooo good.

It was at the Koko in Camden, London. For those of you who haven’t been to a gig there. Do. It’s a sweet venue. (Actually… Deerhunter, Health and Crystal Antlers are playing there on the 24th of August. So that’s a pretty good excuse to go down there. We saw Deerhunter at Concorde2 in Brighton recently and it was really good.)

You know that feeling when you’re at a gig, and at the time you think to yourself, ‘this is the best gig I have ever been to’. (Just me?) Well…. that happened. But I’m still thinking it now. Really was truly amazing. If they’re playing anywhere near you then I suggest you buy tickets before it sells out. I stupidly didn’t buy tickets to their live show coming up on October 31st at the Barbican where they are playing with the London Symphony Orchestra. (If anyone has tickets that you want to sell to me… please get in touch!!)

The sound was great. The set list was great. They opened with Southern Point (from Veckatimest) and then completely rinsed out songs like Colorado, Knife, Lullabye, While You Wait For The Others, Fine For Now and Two Weeks. Sounded so meaty and toight. At one point I thought they might be going on in to a cover of Jump by Van Halen. (Unfrotunately not…. but they should.).  I’ll stop going on about it and show you some photos.

Atlas Sound (Bradford Cox)

Walkabout by Atlas Sound (w. Noah Lennox)
Atlas Sound (Bradford Cox) has a new release planned for the autumn titled Logos (on Kranky). This track is called Walkabout and it features Noah Lennox (Panda Bear). Firstly – It’s awesome. I’ve been loving it and I hope Logos is going to continue to be as good as this. The only dissapointing thing is how far away the release date is. Judging by this song it would be a perfect summer of ’09 album (get it?). Atlas Sound (from Deerhunter) and Panda Bear (from Animal Collective) have both had preivous solo releases which are definitely worth checking out if you haven’t already.

“I toured for a period in Europe with Animal Collective, whose band dynamic was very inspirational to be around. On the bus, we often played improvised iPod games. We would take turns formulating a theme or unifying concept and then play three songs. The goal would be for everyone to try and figure out the theme. During one of these games, someone played ‘What Am I Going to Do‘ by the Dovers. I was amazed at the hook– a weird organ thing with drums and electric bass. I mentioned to Noah [Lennox] that someone should really sample that riff. He agreed and he taught me a little about sampling and matching up beats. This ended up as the collaborative effort ‘Walkabout‘. ” (Taken from Pitchfork interview with Bradford Cox)

It looks like we should be hearing some more collaboration on Logos with Laetitia from Sterolab doing vocals on Quick Canal.

Here is the tracklist.

01 The Light That Failed
02 An Orchid
03 Walkabout [ft. Noah Lennox (Panda Bear)]
04 Criminals
05 Attic Lights
06 Shelia
07 Quick Canal [ft. Laetitia Sadier]
08 My Halo
09 Kid Klimax
10 Washington School
11 Logos

Released October 20th.

I’m looking forward to hearing some more finished material from the album. I’ve not got round to hearing the unfinished version of the album that managed to get leaked yet. But I am glad that Bradford Cox decided against abandoning the project.
