iTunes Editors’ Notes

This prolific and highly original Bay Area band has achieved a widespread, international fan base despite the fact that the components of their music are largely atonal and undeniably strange, mixing lurching time signatures, alternate tunings and bizarre song structures with a strangely child-like vocal style. What saves the group from the margins of novelty art-music is a deeply ingrained pop sensibility and the appealing ability to make seemingly incongruous musical ideas work perfectly together. Recorded after long-time member Chris Cohen left amicably to devote more time to his own group the Curtains, the now pared-down trio version of the 'hoof show themselves to be meaner and leaner. There's half the number of songs that there were on their previous longplayer, The Runners Four, but these songs are among the group's most accessible, and undeniably their best.

Customer Reviews

Wow

I'm amazed that Deerhoof has been able to do something so new with each album, really each song. And still, this might be the best one yet, the writing, playing and sound are all just beautiful. Recommended for fans of pop, fans of crazy melodies, fans of high energy, fans of punk, fans of music that thinks, music that feels, music that moves. Maybe that's everyone!

Not Quite

The first 5 tracks are some the best stuff Deerhoof has done. After that? Not so much. The remaining tracks are an unfocused mess, with the only exceptions being "Matchbook" and "Cast Off Crown". There is no need to download "Look Away" or "Makko Shobu". Once again, Deerhoof has recorded what should have been a great EP, but unfortunately it's another padded album with too much filler.

a treat for the ears

Pretty much defining what we may come to expect from the indie genre. Deer hoof steps over the line of the traditional and forms its own brand of pure perfection. Obviously not for everyone those who can appreciate abstract melodies, off beat rythums, and of course interesting vocals the like of the pixies. Truely a gem among hidden music

Biography

Formed: 1994 in San Francisco, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

By turns cuddly and chaotic, San Francisco's Deerhoof mix noise, sugary melodies, and an experimental spirit into sweetly challenging and utterly distinctive music. The group began as the brainchild of guitarist Rob Fisk and drummer/keyboardist Greg Saunier in 1994; early releases, such as the 1995 7"s Return of the Woods M'Lady and For Those of Us on Foot, had a more traditionally harsh, no wave-inspired sound, though they also included the quirky tendencies that dominated their later efforts.
