EDITORS’ NOTES

The Atlanta band’s eighth full-length finds iconoclastic frontman Bradford Cox and co. shrinking their typically ambient-focused sound, with relatively compact guitar-pop gems alongside haunting, weightless-sounding instrumentals. Featuring contributions from Welsh singer-songwriter Cate Le Bon and Tim Presley of garage-popsters White Fence, Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? diverges from the deeply personal themes of previous Deerhunter albums, zeroing in on topics ranging from James Dean (“Plains”) to the tragic murder of British politician Jo Cox (“No One’s Sleeping”)—but the spectral vocals and penchant for left-field sounds are well accounted for, as the album represents the latest strange chapter in one of modern indie rock’s most consistently surprising acts.

Nocturnal Bliss

Different alligator swim-dance-same scathing tenderness. A Brilliant foray of images & cut and paste story telling.. Love the Cate Lebon touches. Bring on the apocalypse.

How did it take me so long to find these guys?!

New fan who found the band with this album. Love it! Now going through what looks to be a fantastic back catalog that I somehow missed. Every song here is top notch. It doesn’t get much better than this.
