Atlanta's DEERHUNTER have established themselves as one of the most innovative and important bands to emerge from the US in recent years, and the release of Halcyon Digest is set to bolster their newfound status even further. The quartet of Bradford Cox, Lockett Pundt, Joshua Fauver and Moses Archuleta created Halcyon Digest (the band's fourth studio album) in their native Georgia, with recording sessions alongside Ben H. Allen (ANIMAL COLLECTIVE, MGMT) in Athens. Final track He Would Have Laughed was recorded separately by Bradford Cox and is dedicated to friend and musician JAY REATARD, who sadly passed away earlier this year. Deerhunter are renowned for their prolificacy; in the two years since signing to 4AD the group has released a double album (Microcastle and Weird Era Cont.) and a five-track EP (Rainwater Cassette Exchange) as well as numerous unofficial tracks that regularly appear for short durations on the band's blog deerhuntertheband.blogspot.com. Furthermore, the band's own solo projects (Bradford's ATLAS SOUND moniker and Lockett's LOTUS PLAZA) have released albums at a similar rate. With every release they widen their sphere of influence and critically, Deerhunter continue to impress.
