Deerhunter are releasing a “Memory Boy” single in April as part of Record Store Day. Last night, in their second Late Night outing, the group picked up the Black Lips’ Cole Alexander and the Back Pockets’ Adam Bruneau and expanded to a sextet to perform a heady version of the Halcyon Digest track on Letterman. In September 2010 one of our commentors said: “I wish ‘Memory Boy’ was at least 5 minutes long. They could’ve really gone all out with that one.” Chris Carfolite, this is not quite 5 minutes, but still … this is for you.
“Memory Boy” b/w (new track) “Nosebleed” will be available as a limited-edition 7″ and download on 4/16 via 4AD.
