Deerhunter - New European Shows
Deerhunter : New European Shows
12th June 2019

“The best indie rock band in the US.”  - The Guardian 
“One of today’s great American bands… Some of Deerhunter’s prettiest songs to date.” - Uncut 8/10
“One of the great guitar bands of the 21st century, with a catalog full of wild highs, deep sorrows, searing rages, and precisely zero bad albums. Their eighth LP, Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?, continues that streak.” - Rolling Stone​
“Their poppiest, most direct album yet.” - Q ****​
“Solid-gold tunes.” MOJO ****
“This is how you turn pop into art.” - NME ****​

Deerhunter’s critically-acclaimed eighth LP Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared – released in January – forgets the questions and makes up unrelated answers. It gets up, walks around, it records itself in several strategic geographic points across North America. It comes home, restructures itself and goes back to bed to avoid the bad news.

Deerhunter have made a science fiction album about the present. Is it needed right now? Is it relevant? Perhaps only to a small audience. DADA was a reaction to the horrors of war. Punk was a reaction to the slow and vacant 70’s. Hip Hop was a liberated musical culture that challenged the notions presented wholesale about the African-American experience. What is popular music today a reaction to?
