This came to us as "SMD vs Deerhunter," and it took us a minute to figure out exactly what Deerhunter song Simian Mobile Disco had edited, especially since we assumed it was something from the recently, officially released Microcastle/Weird Era Cont.. Turns out it is actually an edit of "Octet" from Cryptograms, which Tim Sweeney played on Beats In Space way back in April, but it's still totally unclear the impetus behind its arrival. Coincidentally, both Bradford Cox and SMD were feature stories in FADER Number 49, so we used our magic wand to make them appear at the same picnic in the photo above. Looks Fun.
