Deerhunter - Microcastle: Wikipedia Album Entry

Bradford Cox wrote in his blog:

...Our next album is going to be called "Microcastle" and we are experimenting with the concept of transposing all these things in this micro format. Imagine a castle with tons of rotted-out little rooms, each containing their own acoustics, etc. I refuse to record the next album in a building that does not at least look like a castle or a haunted mansion. I want to be surrounded by dust and cobwebs. I want the snares to sound haunted. I want the electronics and tubes to glow and hiss in near darkness. Yeah. I wish we could record it on Halloween but we will be in Paris and we all know the buildings there are all brand new and look like the mixed use condos they are throwing up on my city's streets. There is nothing old in the world except my spine.
