On 30th June, Microcastle will be released to buy on vinyl through 4AD, along with Weird Era Cont. which hasn't previously been available on the format outside of the US.
Initially released in October 2008, the critically acclaimed Microcastle was recorded over the course of a week in Brooklyn with Nico Vernhes on production detail, and represented the highly anticipated follow-up to 2006's Cryptograms. Conceived as Deerhunter's 4AD debut, it garnered widespread plaudits internationally, with Pitchfork awarding it Best New Music, and The Guardian heralding "a remarkable band"...
With the release of fifth studio album Monomania now firmly under their belts, Deerhunter have announced details of a European tour beginning in October, which includes a short trip around the UK. Tickets go on general sale today...
This week sees the release of Deerhunter’s fifth album, Monomania.
Monomania began life when a new Deerhunter line-up (with additions of bassist Josh Mckay and guitarist Frankie Broyles) reconvened in January 2013 at Rare Book Studio in Brooklyn, New York. Produced by Nicholas Vernhes and Bradford Cox, Monomania finds the group recalling its scrappy punk aesthetic; a perfect nocturnal garage rock album full of the layered and hazy vintage guitar sounds that define them.
