Deerhoof – “The Merry Barracks” [MUSIC]

Deerhoof

Deerhoof are currently on tour supporting their tenth LP, Deerhoof vs. Evil. They formed in San Francisco around 1995 by drummer/multi-instrumentalist Greg Saunier and guitarist Rob Fisk. Satomi Matsuzaki (who’d just arrive in San Francisco from Tokyo, Japan) soon began singing overtop of Greg and Rob’s raw tape recordings.  Since then the band has had numerous line-up changes and successful tours.  Deerhoof vs. Evil may be the band at their most unpredictable: songs sung in Japanese, Catalan, and English as complex acoustic guitar flourishes, sharp bursts of electronic noise, and J-Pop influenced dance-a-longs hide around every corner—sometimes within the same song.  Check out The Merry Barracks for a taste of this eclectic indie band. AND they will be  playing in Brooklyn on September 20th at The Music Hall of Williamsburg, then the following night in Philadelphia at World Cafe Live.
