Deerhoof vs. Evil

Polyvinyl Record Co.

If you haven’t heard of Deerhoof here is a quick history.  Formed in San Francisco in 1994, they were among the first of a new genre that was just beginning to be known as “indie rock.”  For the last sixteen years they have toured and affected a whole new generation of songwriters; my personal favorite acts Of Montreal, the Flaming Lips, Grizzly Bear and Sufjan Stevens have all cited them as influences.  Their rich history and sound may not be as unique as it once was, their tenth studio release Deerhoof vs. Evil is their best in recent years.  Instead of returning to their roots, they continue to explore new territory for the band and improve on their skills.  It’s worth a listen if you’ve missed their last several years (or whole span), even if it is just to see how they’ve grown.
