Retro-Futurism – DEERHUNTER: Why hasn´t everything already disappeared? (4AD, 2019)

El octavo trabajo de DEERHUNTER es otro clásico más de la banda de Bradford Cox, que de nuevo vuelve a epatar con un disco atípico con todas las trazas de convertirse en un youngtimer, en un clásico adelantado a su tiempo (como casi todo lo que llevan editado hasta el momento). 

Un disco de tonos algo desesperanzadores envuelto en un halo sonoro de nostalgia, de instrumentación del Pop más barroco: clavicordios, teclados definitivamente retros, baterías acústicas… Y unas guitarras en un segundísimo plano. Todo esto no hace más que acrecentar la idea de que los de Atlanta fueron unos adelantados a su tiempo y que se empeñan en demostrarlo a cada trabajo que publican.

“How do you describe an album out of time, concerned with the disappearance of culture, of humanity, of nature, of logic and emotion? Why make this album in an era when attention spans have been reduced to next to nothing, and the tactile grains of making music have been further reduced to algorithms and projected playlist placement. Why wake up in the morning? Why hasn’t everything already disappeared? 
Deerhunter’s eighth LP 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.
From the opening harpsichord and piano figures of Death in Midsummer, it is impossible to tell where the record came from. Is No One’s Sleeping an outtake of an aborted Kinks recording session in 1977 Berlin with Eno producing? No. That is 4ADnostalgia. If there is one thing Deerhunter are making clear it is that they have exhausted themselves with that toxic concept. 
What they spend their time doing instead is reinventing their approach to microphones, the drum kit, the harpsichord, the electromechanical and synthetic sounds of keyboards. Whatever guitars are left are pure chrome, plugged straight into the mixing desk with no amplifier or vintage warmth.
The result is as thrilling, haunting, and unpredictable as anything in their roughly 15-year career. 
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?” (4AD)
