Remember what it was like to turn 16? No one could tell you what to do. You were a force to be reckoned with - you were filled with the undeniable feeling that you could take on anything and win.
Having formed in 1994, Deerhoof has now reached that fateful age and they're stepping out to challenge the world with their brand new release, Deerhoof vs. Evil, which will be released January 25, 2011 on Polyvinyl Records.
As reported on Pitchfork today, Deerhoof vs. Evil documents the musical "coming of age" for the band and features songs that combine intricate rhythms and abrupt melodies that are instantly engaging. Right from "Qui Dorm, Només Somia" (sung in Catalan), it's evident that Deerhoof aren't afraid to take chances. Recorded, mixed, and mastered in practices spaces and basements with no engineers or outside input, Deerhoof have created a blissfully exuberant album while leaving behind all notions of what a "Deerhoof record sounds like." Download the first single, "The Merry Barracks" for free HERE.
