The Friday Fire Track: Deerhunter – “Death In Midsummer”

Deerhunter returns with an album out of time. It is concerned with the disappearance of culture, of humanity, of nature, of logic and emotion.

Deerhunter’s eighth LP, Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?, is out January 19 via 4AD. Like with previous Deerhunter albums- this new one comes with high expectations and from this first single and today’s Friday Fire Track, “Death in Midsummer,” the record could already be considered for a best of in 2019.

From the opening harpsichord and piano figures of “Death in Midsummer”, it is impossible to tell where the record came from. It is already a timeless composition that demands repeat listens. The sound is vintage but the progression in the song is tomorrow.

Deerhunter is already out on tour in a few days so check the list below and enjoy your Friday!
