Beggars Music is excited to announce that the 5th LP from Atlanta band Deerhunter is out now on 4AD Records. After a brief hiatus, during which time Bradford Cox and Lockett Pundt released their own albums as Atlas Sound and Lotus Plaza respectively, a new Deerhunter line-up (with additions of bassist Josh Mckay and guitarist Frankie Broyles) reconvened in January 2013 at Rare Book Studio in Brooklyn, New York. Deerhunter’s new long player was produced by Nicholas Vernhes and Bradford Cox and recorded in the dead of night. Monomania finds the group recalling its scrappy punk aesthetic; a perfect nocturnal garage rock album full of the layered and hazy vintage guitar sounds that define them.

07/01/13 SBTRKT 'Live' album released today
In October 2012, SBTRKT rounded off a hugely successful year of worldwide touring with two sold out shows at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire. As an electronic artist, SBTRKT has skillfully managed to translate the music he makes in his home studio into a compelling live show with only vocalist and musician SAMPHA joining him onstage. The pair work with an array of live acoustic, and electronic instruments to bring a dynamism to the live show that makes each performance unique. It was this that SBTRKT was keen to document when he suggested filming one of the two shows using 12 separate cameras, each focusing on a different element of the show.
The results looked and sounded incredible, so SBTRKT directed the mixing and editing of the footage into 2 live videos and 10 tracks of live audio, all of which he feels perfectly communicates the complexity and energy of the live show.Both the videos and audio are available to download now, exclusively on iTunes, either as additional tracks on the current album to make up a new deluxe format, or as a standalone release, which is simply titled ‘LIVE’.
In addition to this Young Turks will be releasing ‘LIVE’ as a limited run of 500 LP / DVD packages housed in hand-screen-printed sleeves. These are available to preorder now from the Young Turks http://theyoungturks.co.uk/Previous
