Examining the lineup for Deerhunter's recent installment of the All Tomorrow's Parties festival, one of the more obscure names was Lonnie Holley, a 63-year-old Southern outsider artist. As it turns out, Bradford Cox has contributed to the eccentric visual artist and musician's upcoming second album, Keeping a Record of It, out September 3 via the Dust to Digital label. The album also features contributions from Cole Alexander of Black Lips.
