Monomania is the fifth album by Deerhunter, the Atlanta, GA psych-tinged alt. rock act who found critical acclaim with their 2010 release, Halcyon Digest. Named for frontman Bradford Cox's self-confessed, unfaltering focus on the creation of music – which borders on obsession – the album was recorded in the band's favorite Brooklyn studio, the Rare Book Room. Described as a slight step into the avant-garde, Monomania is also their first album without bassist Josh Fauver, who was replaced prior to these sessions by Josh McKay of Athens, GA act Macha.
Deerhunter is an experimental noise rock band from Atlanta, fronted by the compellingly odd singer Bradford Cox. Cox's vocal style blends vocal experimentation along the lines of Meredith Monk or Yoko Ono with a more direct and punky howl inspired by the Fall's Mark E. Smith. Cox is also a striking on-stage presence: the exceedingly skinny 6'4" lead singer has Marfan syndrome, a genetic disorder of the connective tissue that gives him abnormally long and spindly limbs. (The late Joey Ramone was another well-known frontman with Marfan syndrome.)
