Even though Atlanta-based experimental, psychedelic soundscapers Deerhunter proclaimed themselves as being on hiatus, we'd all knew that they'd come back to the live music farm eventually. After all, they've got that ATP VS. P4K gig coming up, and it's not like fans of the ambient-punk group have been suffering for content lately. However, the recent news broken by Bradford Cox himself on the Deerhunter blog that the Atlas Sound show in Brooklyn "will actually be a Deerhunter show" still should come as a surprise. Not only will the quintet be playing their first show in quite some time, but they will also be taking the opportunity to play their new album, Microcastle, in its entirety.
From the Deerhunter blog:
(Deerhunter is) playing the new album "Microcastle" we have recorded with Nicolas Vernhes at the amazing Rare Book Room here in Brooklyn in its entirety. The reason we did not announce it as such is that a.) it was originally intended to be just an atlas sound show, but we have had such a great time recording with each other and rehearsing in the studio that we thought it would be fun to try and pull off an impromptu show with borrowed equipment. and b.) we weren't sure it would work out at first...I don't know much about the details but I'd encourage people to just chill and try and come out and have fun with us. Hope those who are interested will come check out the new songs, they are a lot different and we've been working really hard and having a great time. Respect to all.
