Boomkat Product Review:
"‘Microcastle’ is back on vinyl, this time along with ‘Weird Era Cont.’ accompanying it. ‘Weird Era Cont.’ was a bonus album previously unavailable on the format outside of the US. Initially released in October 2008, ‘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, with Pitchfork awarding it Best New Music and The Guardian heralding “a remarkable band.” Released by Kranky in the US the physical record was accompanied by ‘Weird Era Cont.’, a bonus collection 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 its own right, complementing the rest of the band’s vaunted catalogue. 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. This is the first time that ‘Microcastle’ and ‘Weird Era Cont.’ have been made available together on vinyl outside of the States. Arriving on double vinyl in a gatefold sleeve, the artwork now reflects the original CD cover, the album’s most recognisable design."
