Deerhoof “Deerhoof vs. Evil” (2011)

August 11, 2011

It’s never enough to experiment. Deerhoof release their tenth album and as usual they remember about bizarre concepts. Don’t let that title mislead you – the band is having fun, fun, fun here. Qui Dorm, Només Somia is kinda tropical but the lyrics are somehow about Dracula. Super Duper Rescue Heads! guarantees even more amusement: Me to the rescue, me to the rescue / Hello, hello, you lucky so-and-so. Almost Everyone, Almost Always seems to be an odd marching song. Satomi Matsuzaki has a sweet voice and I wouldn’t mind her singing about corn-growing. This being Deerhoof, fighting evil is pure joy.
