Deerhunter, who released their seventh studio album, Fading Frontier in October, exists somewhere on the border between indie pop and noise rock. Without compromising their sound, the Atlanta, GA quartet has steadily grown in popularity. On Saturday night they brought the new album to the 9:30 Club, this time for a sold out show.
Bradford Cox opened the night with his solo project, Atlas Sound, appearing on stage barely disguised with a half-face mask, sunglasses, and a baseball cap. His 40-minute set fluctuated between soundscapes and songs, as he moved back and forth between several different synthesizers and his guitar, layering sounds and effects to create a wall of noise that filled the club.
