Well, that makes sense since the album was apparently “recorded in the dead of night” at Brooklyn’s Rare Book Studio. Plus, you can expect Monomania to show off Deerhunter’s “scrappy punk aesthetic.”
Earlier this year Deerhunter’s lineup was updated to include bassist Josh McKay and guitarist Frankie Broyles.
