Double vinyl LP pressing containing the band's two 2008 releases. Initially released in October 2008, the critically acclaimed MICROCASTLE was recorded over the course of a week in Brooklyn with Nicolas Vernhes on production detail. The album was the highly anticipated follow-up to 2006's CRYPTOGRAMS. Conceived as Deerhunter's 4AD debut, it garnered widespread plaudits internationally. Released by Kranky in the US the physical record was accompanied by 'WEIRD ERA CONT., a bonus album of tracks recorded in Atlanta following the leak of MICROCASTLE earlier in 2008. Marking a prolific period of writing, this additional material is now highly regarded as a record in it's own right, complementing the rest of the band's vaunted catalog. In extensive writings on his blog at the time, the band's Bradford Cox spoke of his conception of the records as complementary, seen as a Fall / Summer record.
