iTunes Review

San Francisco’s Deerhoof, known for their brand of indie art-rock, have finally found a groove, it seems, and when the stellar track “The Tears of Music...” opens things up with a huge bang —  a full-on, alt-rock song driven by a pounding, resonant kick drum and chewy chunks of guitars — you wonder for a minute if they’ve gone too far.  “Chandelier Searchlight” also finds a tightly grooved rhythm to hang its hat on, and after a few tempo changes and adjustments, merges back into the flow, with Satomi Matsuzaki's breathy, child-like chorus as inviting as freshly swirled cotton candy. Don’t panic: lest you think Deerhoof has given in to the allure of commercial accessibility, just tune into “Buck and Judy,” and you’ll find yourself back in the inner sanctum of the band’s eclectic mindset: twenty seconds in, and a sudden blast of power tool fizz assaults the listener, but it quickly retreats and gives way to looping piano, ascending guitar notes vibrating with reverb, and a haunting chorus from Matsuzaki. From there on, you’ll find tempos and structures you can actually dance to, alongside charmingly erratic arrangements and melodies, and somehow this team playing works to deliver the goods. 

Customer Reviews

they've done it again!

Oh man, oh man, this feel's like deerhoof's return to form. their most exciting album since Apple O. It's got their Holdypaws moments (Eaguro Guru), their love of classic rock (try not to sing Free's hit "ALL RIGHT NOW" over "The Tears and Music of Love), their most beautiful pop moment yet (Chandelier Searchlight), their classic goofy fun side (Basket Ball Get Your Groove Back, the only song to ever want me to play sports.), some neat new wave guitar parts (Snoopy Waves.) and on and on. Something about this albums feels so warm and classic and comfortable. Where you can play it for your 5 year old nephew and they would know that it is good music right away, kind of like how kids instantly like The White Album or something, but it's also one of their most out there and challanging albums yet. Got to say that with this album Deerhoof have joined the ranks of artists like Neil Young, Sonic Youth, and Rolling Stones- where they have achieved rock verteran status but are still able to do new and exciting things that are going to bring in new fans that may have never heard them before. I got a feeling i'll be listening to this album in 10 years.

Another fantastic album in the Deerhoof catalogue

I've been following Deerhoof for years, and love all their stuff from Apple O' to Green Cosmos to Milk Man to Friend Opportunity. Offend Maggie is logical in their evolution as musicians and as a band -- mostly in that, like with every new Deerhoof album, you don't know what to expect exactly. You expect to be surprised and wowed, and Offend Maggie comes through. My favorites so far are "The Tears And Music Of Love", "Chandelier Searchlight", "Snoopy Waves", and the title track "Offend Maggie". Somehow they always pull off sounding simultaneously like Deerhoof and like nothing else I've heard before.


This album blew my mind. It's like older Deerhoof, only with catchier melodies. BUY IT NOW.


Formed: 1994 in San Francisco, CA

Genre: Alternative

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

San Francisco's Deerhoof mix noise, sugary melodies, and an experimental spirit into utterly distinctive music that made them one of the most acclaimed acts of the 2000s and 2010s. 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...
