Attention Deerhunter enthusiasts: Bradford Cox and the crew are back with their fifth album. Monomania, the follow-up to 2010’s critically acclaimed Halcyon Digest, is set to release on May 7 via 4AD. According to the jumbled and bizarrely phrased press release, Monomania, a “Mystery disc of NOCTURNAL GARAGE,” is “avant garde(?) but only in context not form.” Confused? So are we.
