Bradford Cox and his pals in Deerhunter can’t stop making new music. And what may be tiring for them is good for the rest of us. Case in point: A new five-song EP called Rainwater Cassette Exchange is due May 18 digitally and June 8 on CD and vinyl via Kranky in the U.S. and 4AD elsewhere. Like last year’s Microcastle, the EP was recorded with producer Nicolas Verhes at Brooklyn’s Rare Book Room studios.
And while it’s exciting enough to read about fresh Deerhunter tracks, it’s slightly more exciting to actually listen to them. Thankfully, we’ve got you covered. The title track and first single is available to stream and download right below this paragraph. In a recent interview with this website, Cox professed his love for Animal Collective and “Rainwater Cassette Exchange” definitely has a bit of that dubby, underwater lilt perfected by those Merriweather guys.
