Featured Deerhoof stories

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 »

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 »

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 videos came… More »

10 Years Of ATP In Photos

When the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival first launched, the idea of canonizing an iconic album with a track-for-track live performance was still a novel concept. A decade later the album-recreation bit has become another salable gimmick for non-ATP acts trading on nostalgia to line their post-prime coffers, and even ATP has on occasion conferred the… More »

New Shugo Tokumaru – “Rum Hee”

The Japanese avant pop prodigy has a new EP/DVD, but good luck finding it on an English language retail site. The Rum Hee minisite’s flash heavy, so instead head straight to its title track’s Michinori Saigo-directed video on YouTube. EP includes a Deerhoof remix of the tune, too. ? (*^-^)~??? More »

Deerhoof Say Thanks With Lossless Audio

As a “thank you” to fans for supporting their video-rich 10th album Offend Maggie, and as a promotional tie-in to get the word out to those who haven’t, Deerhoof have made one of its tracks “My Purple Past” available as a lossless .wav file. (Come to think of it, Offend Maggie was shutout of the… More »

New Deerhoof Video – “Basket Ball Get Your Groove Back”

At this point, Offend Maggie’s birthed almost as many videos as it has songs, which leads me to assume that one day Deerhoof will, in fact, have visual accompaniment for their tenth album’s entire tracklist. Exciting! (Not really.) “Basket Ball Get Your Groove Back”‘s still-photography is more interesting than “Offend Maggie“‘s still photography, likely because… More »

New Deerhoof Video – “Offend Maggie”

I made the point a couple weeks ago when Deerhoof released their paramecia-core video for “Family Of Others,” but since they keep on giving us new Offend Maggie visual aids, I’ll say it again: Deerhoof love videos. At the time, I listed the previous Offend clips — “Chandelier Searchlight,” “Fresh Born,” “The Tears And MusicMore »

New Deerhoof Video – “Family Of Others”

Deerhoof’s recently released tenth album Offend Maggie has already birthed a number of videos: The animated “Chandelier Searchlight,” “Fresh Born“‘s post-sheet music stuffed gorilla, and the live “The Tears And Music Of Love.” There isn’t one yet for the Offend title track, but while you wait, here’s something quite scientific for the airy (and Grizzly… More »

New Deerhoof Video – “Chandelier Searchlight”

As the release date of Deerhoof’s tenth album approached, the band flooded us with Offend Maggie material. A week and change ago we talked about the fully realized post-sheet music “Fresh Born.” Before that Satomi and Greg harmonized about phone calls and unrequited love on “Offend Maggie” and even earlier, the group showed us “TheMore »

New Deerhoof Video – “Fresh Born”

Before Satomi and Greg Saunier harmonized about phone calls and unrequited love on new title track “Offend Maggie” or (somehow) made like “Living After Midnight” in “The Tears And Music Of Love,” Deerhoof offered up sheet music for another Offend Maggie album track, “Fresh Born.” Maybe you made your own version at home? Now you… More »

New Deerhoof – “Offend Maggie”

Deerhoof offered up that “Fresh Born” sheet music and then it was relative silence on the Offend Maggie front, but in just a couple days our knowledge of their forthcoming ninth album’s grown twofold with the “The Tears And Music Of Love” live video and now the title track in MP3 form. “Offend Maggie”‘s not… More »

New Deerhoof Live Video – “The Tears And Music Of Love”

Technically Deerhoof’s first Offend Maggie single was the “Fresh Born” sheet music, but you get to hear the band themselves in this clip of the album’s opening jam in Tokyo this past June. it’s a taut song, Greg Saunier pounding away on the drums, per usual, while the guitarists synchronize themselves and work as a… More »

New Deerhoof Single Is Sheet Music

Deerhoof’s Offend Maggie is out this October. Adding a wrinkle to the current trend of fan-made remixes and videos, the band’s released the album’s first single “Fresh Born” as a score that fans (or whatever) can download and record. Once they’re finished, they can upload it as an MP3 that other fans are able to… More »

Over the past decade and change, the scene that’s come to define Philadelphia — in media exposure and in most cases, artistic merit — has been spearheaded by the most fabulous Roots crew. Going to middle and high school in the area, word would trickle back to u… More »

New Deerhoof – “Matchbook Seeks Maniac (Dedication Mix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

Deerhoof soundtracked hunky actor Justin Theroux’s directorial debut Dedication, which stars Billy Crudup as a kid’s book scribe with Mandy Moore as an illustrator … wonder where that goes, eh?

New Deerhoof Video – “The Perfect Me”

Yes, we’re still in love with Friend Opportunity, even though we were left wanting more from Deerhoof’s set at the PLUG Awards. Here, the SF trio take one camera, an apartment staircase, a kiddie drum set (sans sticks), and a fresh Satomi vocal for a lo-fi take on the propulsive chop pop of “The Perfect… More »

Meeting Deerhoof Is Easy

Radiohead are nice guys after all. Especially if you’re in a band on the verge of putting out an awesome record. Deerhoof drummer Greg Saunier recently told a tale of mutual admiration that will warm the hearts of ‘hoof and ‘head fans alike (via Gigwise):Everybody knows what an uncommon live group [Radiohead] are, and eve… More »

Premature Evaluation: Deerhoof – Friend Opportunity

Another from this weekend’s leak folder. When Deerhoof’s awesome “+81″ was made available on a European magazine comp last week, we got really excited really quickly (we know, how un-bloglike!) and tried giving you a taste but were politely asked not to; so if you can’t dig up the record on the world wide web,… More »

New Deerhoof – “+81″

An awesome and upbeat appetizer from Deerhoof’s forthcoming record Friend Opportunity. It’s a dose of ’60s-styled pop with Satomi’s cutesy vox, a bridge with bizarre changes, some pysch-guitar riffage from Dieterich, and bookended by trumpet blasts (what else?). We love it.
