If you like Deerhunter (and more specifically Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox), then the upcoming Deerhunter-helmed ATP in Camber Sands, UK (June 21-23) is the must-see show for you this year. The Quietus is reporting that the curators will perform their three studio albums in their entirety (2007’s Cryptograms, 2008’s Microcastle, and 2010’s Halcyon Digest), Atlas Sound will do a set, and Atlas Sound collaborator Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab is also on the bill. Put on your fanciest sun dress and swing from the rafters in joy!
If that wasn’t enough, though, a who’s who of clear Deerhunter-influencers will also be on board, including The Breeders shambling their way through Last Splash, Wiliam Basinski recreating his Disintegration Loops, Kim Gordon performing with longtime collaborate Ikue Mori, Tom Tom Club, Rhys Chatham with Oneida, Pere Ubu, Dan Deacon, Avey Tare, Blues Control, former Talking Head Tina Weymouth, members of Broadcast, and more. It’s kind of a really good lineup.
Can’t make it to the UK this summer? Bummer, man. Maybe you can have a friend do a fake British accent while you listen to Microcastle on shitty headphones in a loud room? Just close your eyes and it’ll be like you’re there.
