iTunes Editors’ Notes

It's hard to believe given his towering stature in the indie rock scene these days — both literally and figuratively — but Bradford Cox was a blip on everyone's radar up until a few years ago, when Deerhunter delivered their breakthrough disc, Cryptograms. Now that he's seemingly everywhere, from blabbing on blogs to carving out a side career with Atlas Sound, it's easy to write Rainwater Cassette Exchange off as Cox's spring cleaning collection. After all, it tears through five new tracks in 15 minutes, leaving lots of blustery garage pop in its wake. There's a lightheaded ballad that breaks out the bongos ("Game of Diamonds"), traces of extraterrestrial theremin lines ("Famous Last Words"), and a curtain-closer that starts off as a catchy indie rock tune and ends in a series of splintered samples and scrambled frequencies. Wait, what were we saying about this being a bunch of leftovers again? Never mind.

Customer Reviews

Once again!

Simply splendid. The EP has a bit more of a poppy feel, as it seems is somewhat consistent with Deerhunter's newer material.

Deerhunter

this band is great! buy their earlier stuff first esp. Cryptograms- smoke some herb and sink into that album. the only thing i can remember from 2007 was blazing b4 school and letting the swirling guitars consume me...this band is going places and this EP is awesome

****1/2, Keep the Music Coming, Please!

Deerhunter and Atlas Sound (singer B. Cox's solo project) have been releasing new material at an alarming rate these past years, and I for one am happy about it. Although I was really hoping this entire EP would sound like the title track -- a slow, downtempo Merriweather Post Pavillion type of song -- this is still a great five-tracker. Game of Diamonds is the next closest thing to R.C.E. in terms of tempo, even the beat is similar in that it's almost tribal. The rest of these songs are typical Deerhunter style, with quick beats and reverb dripping all over everything. The fact that iTunes got this on here so promptly is definitely a good thing, and I hope there is much more to come from Deerhunter and Atlas Sound in the near future.

Biography

Formed: 2001 in Atlanta, GA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Deerhunter are an experimental noise rock band from Atlanta, fronted by the compellingly odd singer Bradford Cox. Cox's vocal style blends vocal experimentation along the lines of Meredith Monk or Yoko Ono with a more direct and punky howl inspired by the Fall's Mark E. Smith. Cox is also a striking on-stage presence: the exceedingly skinny 6'4" lead singer has Marfan syndrome, a genetic disorder of the connective tissue that gives him abnormally long and spindly limbs. (The late Joey Ramone was...
