Bradford Cox has collaborated with Cate Le Bon on a new EP out on Mexican Summer called Myths 004.
The Deerhunter frontman and the cryptic singer-songwriter draw out each other’s playful sides on this one-off collaboration.
Every year at the Marfa Myths festival in Texas, a pair of musicians assemble to produce an off-the-cuff EP, which Mexican Summer then releases as part of its Myths series.
Bradford Cox’s Myths release with Cate Le Bon captures the pair of tender oddballs affirming their commonality. While they hail from the disparate environments of working-class Atlanta and rural Wales, they share an aptitude for un-showy beauty, idiosyncratic freak-outs, and surrealist punk humour.
Le Bon also co-produced Deerhunter’s eighth album Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? during those Marfa sessions, drawing out the poppiest side of the band in some time.
