Rolling Stone recently unveiled a behind the scenes look at Deerhunter's in-studio sessions, where the Atlanta band is hard at work on the follow-up to 2010's Halcyon Digest. Taking place at Rare Book Room Studio in Brooklyn, the outfit is working with producer Nicolas Vernhea during their late-night recordings.
According to RS, "[f]rontman Bradford Cox stockpiled upward of 250 potential songs for the new disc; so far he's whittled them down to a strong dozen, including the swaggering rocker "Dream Captain."" And, when speaking on the album as a whole, Cox says it is "a very avant-garde rock & roll record."
With Cox, guitarist Lockett Pundt, drummer Moses Archuleta, and new bassist Josh McKay stretching their recording sessions to 6am, their hard work and dedication will surely pay off.
Head over to Rolling Stone to check out their full gallery of in-studio photographs. More news on Deerhunter's yet-to-be-titled fifth album should arrive in the coming months.
