Deerhoof – “What Have You Done For Me Lately” (Janet Jackson Cover)

Deerhoof's La Isla Bonita was largely inspired by Janet Jackson and Madonna, so much so that single "Paradise Girls" evolved from a demo of the band covering Jackson's "What Have You Done For Me Lately." Today the noise-pop veterans have shared that demo to help connect the dots between their inspiration and… More »

Deerhoof – “Black Pitch” Video

Deerhoof continued their two-decade reign over noise-addled pop on last year's La Isla Bonita, and now they've released a video for one of the record's fuzzier, more-subdued moments, "Black Pitch." The band's firecracker frontwoman Satomi Matsuzak strolls through London's well-known seaside spots, including Canary Wharf and Battersea, playing further on the album title. What… More »

Deerhoof – “Exit Only (Perfect Pussy Remix)”

Deerhoof's La Isla Bonita highlight "Exit Only" has gotten a massive remix from Perfect Pussy. The first half follows the structure of the original song for the most part, but it sounds as though it was recorded from the dark depths of hell: everything's heavier and moves sluggishly, though the hook of the song i… More »

Deerhoof – “Paradise Girls” Video

Deerhoof always know how to put together a thoroughly weird and idiosyncratic video, which is exactly what they did for their latest single "Paradise Girls" off their recently released album La Isla Bonita. For much of the video, an energetic dancer's face is the only one you see -- everybody else is wrapped up tightly… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Here's something I wasn't quite expecting: Every last one of the videos on this week's list has some kind of narrative to it, even if that story is just "intense guy wanders around motel and weird things happen." Most of them are pretty cartoony. Some of them involve actual professional actors. All of them are… More »

Deerhoof – “Exit Only” Video (Feat. Michael Shannon)

Deerhoof have just shared a wildly entertaining video for La Isla Bonita standout "Exit Only" starring Michael Shannon. Shannon plays two versions of himself sitting across a table from each other; one Shannon puts on headphones and listens to Deerhoof, which seems to give him some kind of torturous voodoo power of the… More »

Stream Deerhoof La Isla Bonita

Veteran Bay Area spaz-poppers Deerhoof recorded their new album La Isla Bonita live in a garage over one week. God Mode label head Nick Sylvester (who is, full disclosure, my friend) recorded it, and it has a bit more melody and a bit less berserk skronk pyrotechnics than a lot of other Deerhoof records. But… More »

Deerhoof – “Last Fad”

Deerhoof are getting ready to release their new album, La Isla Bonita, and from the sound of singles like "Paradise Girls" and "Exit Only," it's going to be an especially noisy and groovy one. Add "Last Fad" to that list as well. The track stutters and jerks around with a Captain Beefheart-style enthusiasm,… More »

Deerhoof – “Paradise Girls”

Nick Sylvester is the guy in charge of Godmode Records, a small New York indie that's been releasing very, very good music for a couple of years. He's also a former rock critic and a good friend. So I'm very excited that Sylvester is producing La Isla Bonita, the forthcoming album from the long-running… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

Let's be honest: This was a pretty stacked week. It's always a joy to find new music that surprises and impresses you, and while this week's list is indeed impressive, it may not be especially surprising. These are just five (well, six) artists at the tops of their respective games, and they're fucking killing it. More »

Deerhoof – “Exit Only”

Deerhoof have a tremendously admirable work ethic. As a fan, you're almost guaranteed a new album every year or two. Their last, Breakup Song, came out in 2012, and now, right on time, Deerhoof have announced that their new album, La Isla Bonita, will be released in November. The album is produced by Nick Sylvester… More »

Deerhoof – “Flower” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

The longstanding and inventive powerhouse Deerhoof is set to tour all over the world this spring, but first they're unveiling a video for their Breakup Song psych ditty "Flower." The clip, directed by Yuan Liu and Owen Donovan, takes place in a laundromat filled with shady characters and one young lady with wet feet. Leather,… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Earlier today, I posted a bigass list of my favorite music videos of the year. That should honestly be enough to keep your optic nerves crammed full for the day. But if you're done with it, or you're somehow low on viewing options this weekend, please note that plenty of other good music video… More »

Deerhoof – “Breakup Songs” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Last we saw Deerhoof, they were running around Japan in their video for "We Do Parties." They're absent from this clip, the Pieter Dirkx-directed, dark visuals for their current album's title(-ish) track "Breakup Songs." Instead, a plague doctor visits a town that is afflicted with something that causes an array of rainbow-colored vomit. More »

Deerhoof – “We Do Parties” Video

Deerhoof go a guerrilla promo adventure in their video for "We Do Parties." Their romp around Japan proves my suspicion that Deerhoof are not just awesome shredders but also probably fun to hang out with. You guys are welcome to play my birthday party any time. Check out the clip below. More »

Mystical Weapons – “Mechanical Mammoth” Video

Last month, we learned about the existence of Mystical Weapons, Sean Lennon's new experimental-psych duo with Deerhoof drummer Greg Saunier. Now, we've got the video for their madly blooping single "Mechanical Mammoth." Martha Colburn directs, and it's an art-fucked collage of masked women and swirling colors. Watch it and download the song below. More »

Deerhoof – “Mario’s Flaming Whiskers III” Video

"Mario's Flaming Whiskers III" is a jittery, catchy tune from Deerhoof's new album Breakup Song. and for its video, director Richard Huntington Swanson films an old-timey circus and makes it look as trippy as possible. This might be the first recorded appearance of tough-guy mimes, so take note. It's below. More »
