From their humble beginnings as an obscure San Francisco noise act, Deerhoof have become one of the most influential bands in the creative rock underground, with their ecstatic and unruly take on pop. With every successive album, it becomes clearer that Deerhoof just do whatever they feel like doing. They're not caving to expectations, playing to genres, or running with a set of strict rules. Their albums feel instinctual, and that's not just because of Satomi Matsuzaki's childlike vocals: whether it's interlocking guitar shredding or cathartic drum pounding, jazz dexterity, or metal intensity, four musicians who have been playing together for a decade and a half naturally have this special kind of chemistry. Somehow, the end results always manage to both impress and sound like Deerhoof, freewheeling experimentalism that rediscovers the band's own sound while also producing viscerally new and effective music.
With Awkwafina and Celestial Shore.
