Deerhunter have a new album coming out soon, and during a concert in New York this week, they debuted a few songs from it. The show was the first stop in Deerhunter’s summer tour, and, as Steregum notes, they performed seven new songs: “Detournement,” “Futurism,” “What Happens To People,” “Element,” “No One’s Sleeping,” and “Death In Midsummer.” For their second New York show on the following day, they played a very similar set but this time they were joined by most of Animal Collective (everyone but Panda Bear).  Animal Collective joined Deerhunter onstage at the end of an encore for a extended improvised jam. Watch some footage from that second show in New York through fan videos below.


And then Animal Collective took the stage to do a group jam with Deerhunter.
