Like his friend Bradford Cox, Lockett Pundt also needs an exhaust valve from Deerhunter. To this end, he has Lotus Plaza, the alias he used in 2009 when he made “The Floodlight Collective”. For 2012, he promises some more action. Before his second album comes out on Kranky later this year, on 14th February he'll release a split single on 10-inch (limited to 500 copies) via Audraglint, entitled “Nice Weekend”. The release date couldn't be more appropriate, as the record features a B-side written and recorded with his fiancée, Shayda Yavari. Here we leave you with the A-side, “Come Back”.
