Deerhunter began in 2001 with the ambition of fusing the lulling hypnotic states induced by ambient and minimalist music with the klang and propulsion of garage rock. Co-founded by Bradford Cox and Moses Archuleta in Atlanta, the band have since produced three LPs and four EPs worth of astonishing "ambient punk" - their own description - picking up devotees and different musicians along the way. Their mantra is decisive: "to achieve harmony in bad taste is the height of elegance" and so far they haven't disappointed Jean Genet. Their live performances are almost always polarising and verge on the revelatory, so we're excited to have them play this show for us. Hot on the heels of their much acclaimed album 'Microcastle' on 4AD / Kranky, the band release a new EP, entitled 'Rainwater Cassette Exchange' digitally on May 18th and on physical formats on June 8th.
