“Responding to several requests I have dug up an old copy of this 2005 Deerhunter CD-R… It features only me and Moses [Archuleta] and is very experimental in nature. This was during our “tape phase” when we would often play shows as a duo (or as a trio with Colin) playing only tape machines and vocal loops.”

Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox on how he spent his Sunday evening.

The 10-track demo features the title Carve Your Initials Into the Walls of the Night and sports scans of the original artwork (from the Notown Xerox Machine!). It was recorded live to 2-track cassette machine at Moses’ old house on North Ave & Ponce and “mastered” at the Old Notown building on “my dad’s ancient PC using Soundforge.” Get it here.
