Title: Why Hasnt Everything Already Disappeared

1. Product Details

How do you describe an album out of time concerned with the disappearance of culture of humanity of nature of logic and emotion Why make this album in an era when attention spans have been reduced to next to nothing and the tactile grains of making music have been further reduced to algorithms and projected playlist placement. Why wake up in the morning Why hasnt everything already disappeared Deerhunters eighth LP forgets the questions and makes up unrelated answers. It gets up walks around it records itself in several strategic geographic points across North America. It comes home restructures itself and goes back to bed to avoid the bad news. From the opening harpsichord and piano figures of Death in Midsummer it is impossible to tell where the record came from. Is No Ones Sleeping an outtake of an aborted Kinks recording session in 1977 Berlin with Eno producing No. That is nostalgia. If there is one thing Deerhunter are making clear it is that they have exhausted themselves with that toxic concept. What they spend their time doing instead is reinventing their approach to microphones the drum kit the harpsichord the electromechanical and synthetic sounds of keyboards. Whatever guitars are left are pure chrome plugged straight into the mixing desk with no amplifier or vintage warmth. The result is as thrilling haunting and unpredictable as anything in their roughly 15 year career. Deerhunter have made a science fiction album about the present. Is it needed right now Is it relevant Perhaps only to a small audience. DADA was a reaction to the horrors of war. Punk was a reaction to the slow and vacant 70s. Hip Hop was a liberated musical culture that challenged the notions presented wholesale about the African-American experience. What is popular music today a reaction to
