Deerhunter - Microcastle 2xLP
The highly anticipated follow-up to 2007's Cryptograms album which launched Deerhunter into the stratosphere of hype. Whether or not that was or is deserved is entirely subjective. Microcastle was recorded over the course of a week at Rare Book Studios in Brooklyn, New York with Nicolas Verhes in April of this year. The album was recorded as a four-piece consisting of Bradford Cox, Lockett Pundt, Joshua Fauver and Moses Archuleta. "Saved by Old Times" features a vocal collage by Cole Alexander of the Black Lips, and the album also features two songs with lead vocals by guitarist Pundt — "Agoraphobia" and "Neither of Us, Uncertainly." Includes a bonus LP with an entire second album of material titled Weird Era Cont.
