Earlier this month, just a few hours before Deerhunter launched the countdown clock that led to the news of their new album Fading Frontier, guitarist Frankie Broyles announced plans to strike out on his own. We already shared “Capturer,” one of two songs on Broyles’ debut solo 7″, and today the other track is revealed. “Color Set” definitely inhabits similar headspace to Deerhunter, but Broyles matches a crooner’s authority with spare lo-fi production in a way that reminds me of Jens Lekman or Merchandise. It’s good, and you should listen.
The “Color Set” b/w “Capturer” 7″ is out this Friday, 8/21 on Lefse. Pre-order it here.
