Extracurricular activities: Dean & Britta & Cheval Sombre
Cheval Sombre (facebook), who's first, self-titled, album was released on Dean & Britta's Double Feature Records is about to release his second album, Mad Love. The album comes out in November on lovely indie Sonic Cathedral and again has substantial contributions from Dean & Britta, as well as members of MGMT, and is co-produced by Sonic Boom.

NME gave the album its Radar Tip of the Day.
Here are a few reminders of Dean & Britta's previous involvement with Cheval Sombre
Great set of photos of Cheval Sombre with Dean & Britta and Sonic Boom at Death By Audio in Brooklyn in 2009 (sadly with embedding disabled so you'll have to head over to flickr to see them all).
In other Extracurricular activities news Dean & Britta also turn up on the forthcoming album by Gryphon Rue Good Mourning, Short Companions - you can listen to most of it (including the track with Dean & Britta) over at his website.
