The nervy and unpredictable San Franciscan art-poppers Deerhoof have a new LP called Breakup Song coming out soon, and the early track “The Trouble With Candyhands” makes use of something I wasn’t expecting at all: Latin horn stabs! There’s also a vaguely funky psychedelic guitar bit. The whole thing is a lot friendlier and less stab-happy than the sort of noise Deerhoof usually brings, but it’s still very much off in its own world. Listen below.
Breakup Song is out 9/4 on Polyvinyl.
