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.
