The controversial ambient-indie ensemble Deerhunter drew considerable attention in 2006 and 2007 as much for a series of challenging shoegaze-inspired recordings as for the blog writings of skeletal frontman Bradford Cox. An open book of sorts, Cox uses Deerhunter (and, apparently, his blog) as an outlet to confront his personal demons. At times quite beautiful, at others disarmingly abstract, Deerhunter experiments with various left-field recording and performing techniques to create their soundscapes. The Atlanta-based band has toured with Battles, the Fiery Furnaces, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, among other 21st-century indie heavyweights.
