Deerhunter have returned with their first album since 2010

Caught in the net: Deerhunter go for a new unhinged sound

One of my favourite bands of the last five years or so Deerhunter (pictured) return with their first album since 2010's fine effort Halcyon Digest. The new one from the US art-rocking five piece is called Monomania and is due in early May. They recently shared the title track from the album – it can be heard at youtu.be/bYUENZQ84-E. Whereas Halcyon Digest was a relatively controlled, polished affair, here they sound a bit more unhinged and jagged, particularly in final movements as the song spins off into some wild noise. I'm pretty much happy to stick with them whatever move they make, so I'm excited to see how this record turns out.
