Robin Pecknold told Pitchfork that he's been holed up in a big house in Port Townsend writing songs. The band is beginning to record some of those songs.
"We rented a new space in Seattle. We were looking for a space in town, and I asked Josh [Rosenfeld] from Barsuk, the label honcho dude, if he knew of anything. He said that Death Cab were moving out of their space and the space that they were in was the space where they recorded all the Sub Pop records from 1986 to 1992. Phil Ek worked there a bunch. It's been a studio since the 1970s, and Nirvana did Bleach there. It's pretty run-down. It's not a big or nice studio or anything, and we're just renting the building," said Robin Pecknold.
