Deerhunter’s new album, Fading Frontier, has been released and is available for streaming. Fading Frontier features collaborations with James Cargill of Broadcast and Tim Cane of Stereolab. It’s a bit more mellow and less manic than their previous album, Monomania. Bradford Cox acknowledges this in an interview with Pitchfork and says that his perspective on life changed after he was hit by a car, “I lost that manic urge that I used as fuel with Monomania”. He goes on to say that Fading Frontier “feels to me like the first day of spring, where you go out and everybody’s happy and sitting on their stoops and walking their dogs and waving to each other. It happens once a year, after a brutal winter. It’s the day when you realize it’s not gonna be freezing forever, you’re not gonna be miserable forever. It’s a very special feeling.” There couldn’t be a more perfect description of what this album sounds like. Enjoy!

The record was made by founding members Bradford Cox, Lockett Pundt, Moses Archuleta, and bassist Josh McKay. Written in their hometown of Atlanta, GA, production duties were shared by the band and Ben H. Allen III, continuing a collaboration that began with 2010’s Halcyon Digest.
Fading Frontier shows that a decade in, Deerhunter has lost none of its intensity. As the group matures, so they have grown into the most consistent purveyors of art-rock of their generation.
