Cox dodges questions about the sound of Deerhunter's new material, but he's more than happy to cite influences. "Last night, I listened to Steve Reich until 7 in the morning," he says. Later, he adds: "The only thing that Lockett and I listened to before making this record was the Ramones and Ricky Nelson. And Pierre Schaeffer. And Bo Diddley! He's the god of this record. But I don't think there's a single Bo Diddley beat on the album."
