On 12th September this year, Deerhunter of Atlanta, Georgia spent a night in New York recording ‘Timebends’, a 12-minute opus that is released digitally today.
A separate entity to their eighth studio album Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? ‘Timebends’ is a partly improvised stream-of-consciousness outpouring. Recorded live direct to tape and in one take with minimal overdubs and mastered using a completely analogue signal chain, ‘Timebends’ recalls Deerhunter’s early avant-garde recordings and reaffirms their position as one of this generation’s most dynamic live acts.
Listen to ‘Timebends’ – BELOW:
Deerhunter begin their European tour this weekend, with Cate Le Bon supporting at London, Bristol, Manchester and Birmingham shows. Deerhunter’s Bradford Cox and Cate Le Bon worked together on a 7-track EP Myths 004, released this week via Mexican Summer. Listen here.
