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 an angular (but crunchy) rhythmic backdrop for Satomi’s bass and vocalizations. “Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go, green valley…”

One thing: that main riff reminds me of this, minus the girls crying in the audience. (Right, if they only knew then what we — and maybe Out doesn’t? — know now.)
