Cate Le Bon and Bradford Cox, ‘Myths 004’

Mexican Summer’s Myths EP series’ fourth collaboration brings together Cate Le Bon and Bradford Cox (of Deerhunter), joining in the ranks of previous collaborators Weyes Blood and Ariel Pink, Dev Hynes and Connan Mockasin, and Dungen and Woods. This latest offering, much like its predecessors, reveals itself to be a statement on the beauty and possibility of parnership in creativity. ‘Embracing the chaos,’ as Le Bon puts it, of a week-long recording session at the legendary Marfa Myths festival. The record serves as a ‘crude holiday scrapbook’ of this time. A spontaneous, energetic and at times surreal EP, Myths 004 alchemises the junk of everyday life and embraces the sheer joy of playing. Just as schoolchildren swap toys and team up for playground games, so too do Cate Le Bon and Bradford Cox cherish the organic experimentation of this musical alliance with child-like wonderment.
