Yesterday afternoon, the music industry consulting firm Milk Money posted the following on their Twitter: “Deerhunter here in Maze with Ben Allen mixing new LP. Everybody’s excited about the sound.”
The Ben Allen in question is the guy who engineered and mixed Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavilion and Fall Be Kind EP, helping that band reach new levels of bass-heavy blissout. He also worked on Gnarls Barkley’s St. Elsewhere. (Maze is Allen’s studio.) We don’t have any further details yet, but that already seems like plenty of reason to get amped.
