He hates time. The man who opens the door to the wardrobe container in the backstage area, where his band mates are already talking friendly and cares about the Album, it says. He then says impatiently: "Why is everyone here so weird?"
The man who hates time and to forget at home in Atlanta, which is the day of the week, which means Bradford Cox. The 36-Year-old counts as the singer of the Band Deerhunter to those heads in the music business, which alone can flip through your presence and your whims in the normal course of the end of the Interviews. So far it's not coming to the Meeting in the context of the Bad Bonn Kilbi in Fribourg Düdingen, where Deerhunter were the flagship of the last year's edition of the Festival,. But you know, for a brief Moment, as tense can feel in the intricate structure of a Band playing together for over 15 years. On Friday, they released "Why Hasn't Everything Already Disappeared?" her eighth Album.
It is an Album that begins with harpsichord sounds, and the bright, easy-to-nölenden voice of Cox, and on the trace of the power, which disappears in the age of digitalisation, all – or already gone. You make the to this carefully constructed Album with a slightly distorted guitar music that exudes an elegiac mood, but in the case of the presence of escape always has the urgency, in the clear nostalgia is, ' no, it is not a solution, even if you take plates of Songs that you must hear in this sequence, in order to unfold their effect.
Deerhunter knows best: the analog of The past will never come back. And also not that time, as they were the actual children of the Internet in the middle of the zero years, one of the most spectacular phenomena of the former, of blog-driven music landscape. What also has to do with the Outside Maverick bent of Bradford Cox and his body is deformed from a rare genetic disease. Without Pop as a refuge, without the plates and books he hoards, would have survived a Person such as he.

Those are so close and yet so distant times after the year thousand change in the current present, the various Hip-Hop game types and streaming services like Spotify dominate the listening behavior, almost forgotten. The music industry is not controlled, the Internet structures, and albums have already been leaked long before the release. One such example was in 2008, Deerhunters key plate "micro castle", the Band played a psychedelic, obsessive and dark dream at the end of rock music. Bradford Cox was furious about the early publication so that the band members produced a second, far more experimental Album. And as you were with your perhaps the most beautiful and most successful Album, "Halcyon Digest" (2010) is almost too popular for the indie world, they destroyed the commercial hopes and expectations of the record company with your rawest Album.
musician today need to move with the first Song. A failure you can not afford.
careers such as those of Deerhunter, especially those mountains, even after over a decade of artistic challenges – have become rare. The Band also benefited from what Bradford Cox hates: time to develop, to do research on the Sounds, which can be to a musical manuscript. The data-driven and optimized presence is acting much more nervous, impatient also: musicians today need to take already with their first Song and perform. You can barely afford to fail even once a luxury, the Deerhunter, which can be a brilliant live band, their concerts again and again.

But Sentimental does not apply, not even for a Band from one of pop music's archival Era, juggling with quotations, and in the worst moments, even addicted to the past, as the music journalist Simon Reynolds in his death-cited book "retro mania" ruled.
place seem to be Why because Deerhunter, the zero years survived and is still alive? You can hear it on the new Album, on which the various interests of the musicians, as well as the free-spirited songwriter Cate Le Bon, which has co-produced the plate, flow into one another. Place carefully traces through contemporary Traumpop to the England of the Kinks. Only to the origin of this music again.
This familiarity and curiosity of the individual band members, which is reflected in the music, is also felt when a drummer Moses Archuleta and guitarist Lockett Pundt tell from the recording process in the Texas desert. Then mention how much you were dependent on each other where there was nothing else to do than to make music.
The mittdrei of the gymnasium are surprised that they take so long to each other plates, and go on Tour in a structure in which the role of the other recognizes and respects. Even if the situation seems tense, as in the Container in Freiburg's Hinterland. Because Bradford Cox not only hates the time. He hates to leave his home.
