iTunes Review

Retreating from the garage snarl of 2013’s Monomania to the gauzy, melodic textures of 2010’s Halcyon Digest, Deerhunter have made their warmest record yet. The psychedelic swoops of “Breaker”, synth pulse of “Ad Astra” and lysergic funk of “Snakeskin” all expertly find the biting point between invention and accessibility. The gorgeous sonics are regularly just a salve for caustic lyrics though, and Bradford Cox’s outsider spirit rages with paranoia and self-laceration throughout.

Customer Reviews

My favorite album of the year.

Have been anticipating this one for months, and like all Bradford Cox material, I have yet to be disappointed. The album itself isn't very long, I've probably listened to it 20 times already just from driving to and from work over the last 5 days. For microcasle fans, be aware this is a more mellow album, snakeskin is prob the most dance inspiring song on album, and the longest track at 7min+. .. As always they capture a psyche/ dream pop aspect that made me fall in love deerhunter over the years. Along with cox's amazing vocals, samples, guitar riffs, it should give any true fan of music hope that there are still a select few that u can always count on to change musically album to album, change with the times, and still kill it. Thanks to deerhunter for making my week here in America more tolerable. I can't wait to here some of the tracks live, as I am sure it'll b amazing. Cheers.

One of the Best Indie Rockers on the Scene Right Now

Deerhunter continue to create solid album after solid album since Microcastle. Each album has a different vibe and style to it which makes every album in their catalogue unique and worthwhile. This album sounds very desert-y and Deerhunter at their most creative so far. Do yourself a favour and buy this if you're a fan of indie rock.


Deerhunter (and band pertaining to Bradford Cox) is a musical experience unlike anything else. Breaker is an amazing song and the relevance it has to my life right now is something magical. New job--->suspension for being misunderstood because of my eccentricities and inability to connect with people---Meeting this week to see if I am "physically and emotionally fit to partake in daily routines as per my job description as a teacher"...I feel as if I am "breaking the waves" as the song implies, and all I can say is "I keep trying and trying"...There is still a stigma on people with labels (e.g., Asperger's with concomitant issues like bi-polar, OCD, ADD)...It's difficult enough to land a job, let alone when you are ostracized or at least you perceive that you are...If I were to delineate those "issues" I would be a no hire...Yet, my FBI background and state background checks clear time and time again...I digress, as this is a music review, but Breaker resonates so much with my current situation...I cannot wait until the full album release! Thanks Bradford for not making me feel completely alone and knowing that "I have tried, to break the waves and stem the tide over and over again..." Maybe the next try will be a success?


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.
