Deerhunter just announced a new album, Fading Frontier, that’ll be out 10/16 on 4AD. I don’t think I need to tell you how excited this makes me. Along with the usual Deerhunter awesomeness, this one features contributions from Broadcast’s James Cargill and Stereolab’s Tim Gane.
The first single from Fading Frontier is “Snakeskin”, which builds on the back of a skittery, damn near danceable rhythm. The chord progressions and outro are still noticeably Deerhunter, though, and now the countdown to October officially begins.
