Deerhoof – “Chandelier Searchlight”, off of 2008′s Offend Maggie, video directed by Clyde Petersen
Deerhoof’s tenth studio album, called Offend Maggie on Kill Rock Stars, will not shock any long time fans of the San Francisco group that have spawned everything from 7″ records to ballets. They even released one of their tracks from the nex album (“Fresh Born”) early as sheet music so people could create their own versions of it. Neat-o huh?
Although they haven’t broken new ground with this album, Satomi Matsuzaki’s vocals are as flitting and calm as ever and their shift from individual to compositional has never been more apparent. Deerhoof are a polished experimental group who understand that its not always necessary to reinvent yourself to remain pertinent in musical society. As Matsuzaki sings on the title track “one, two, three, four/I won’t become history”. I certainly hope not.
