Well, here’s some news to celebrate: there might be a new Deerhunter album soon! Last night, frontman Bradford Cox played an all-electronic set of seemingly new material at NXNE under his solo moniker Atlas Sound, described by one anonymous Redditor as “like a crazier Panda Bear.” That same anonymous Redditor talked to Cox after the show, and while he reportedly didn’t have anything to say about a new Atlas Sound release, he did reveal that the new Deerhunter album is coming “really soon” and “sounds like INXS.” In a recent tweet Deerhunter guitarist Lockett Pundt also seemed to confirm new material’s coming in the fall:
If you come to see us in Oct, you'll see it. https://t.co/FDNJFObD4E

Although the members of Deerhunter have kept up a fairly steady stream of side projects, this will be the band’s first album since 2013’s excellent Monomania. They have probably one of the most consistently great discographies in recent memory, so this is definitely something to look forward to!
