Deerhoof Cover 43 Songs In 35 Minutes On Free Surprise Album Love-Lore

Deerhoof have released a dizzying new covers album called Love-Lore that finds the art-rock band covering 43 songs over the course of 35 minutes. The album is available now as a free download over on Deerhoof’s website. It comes on the heels of the band’s latest original album, Future Teenage Cave Artists, which came out in May. They previously reimagined popular culture in their own unique way on 2018’s Deerhoof Plays The Music Of The Shining.

Love-Lore features renditions of songs by Ornette Coleman, the Velvet Underground, Laurie Anderson, Igor Stravinsky, Ennio Morricone, the Police, Sun Ra, Parliament, John Williams, the Beach Boys, Voivod, Silver Apples, Kraftwerk, the B-52s, Dionne Warwick, and many more, and they’re all mangled together like a more analog Girl Talk.
