Interviews: Beyond Nostalgia: A Conversation with Deerhunter’s Bradford Cox
Pitchfork visits Bradford Cox at home in Atlanta to talk about Deerhunter's new album Fading Frontier, out October 16 via 4AD. "This record feels to me like the first day of spring, where you go out and everybody’s happy and sitting on their stoops and walking their dogs and waving to each other. It happens once a year, after a brutal winter. It’s the day when you realize it’s not gonna be freezing forever, you’re not gonna be miserable forever. It’s a very special feeling."
