Tommy, I would just like to say thank you for articulating all the reasons I like Deerhoof that I could never explain to myself.

One of my favorite parts about Deerhoof is yeah, the part where they all just seem really nice. I've read some interviews in which they've stated that they have no idea what they're doing when it comes to mixing and shit. I like that! I have no idea what I'm doing, either. They are just very inspiring. Like when they posted a picture on Facebook of them mixing the album in the car. I was like "I SHOULD DO THAT!" and then I did. And I was like :D the whole time

I'm very easily impressionable

INPUT FROM A NEWB, WHAT

Milk Man and Friend Opportunity are what got me into Deerhoof.  They've got some weird experimental stuff on them, but there's also a fair amount of more accessible pop-ish elements, particularly on Friend Opportunity.

I really like Satomi's vocals, personally.  There's a nice contrast between her high, childlike vocals and the crunchiness of the rest of the instrumentation.  But I can understand how they would be off-putting to some.

Before joining/lurking on this forum, I never knew that Deerhoof was so divisive.  Or a Big Deal at all.

I know right! Who knew Deerhoof were so divisive! Good Mosesing Tommy.

Also guys, I like Ponytail. What's up with that? Their new album is a lot of fun. What's up with that?

It's really not. The anti-deerhoof society consists of shane and maybe Calenlass.

I want to see them play a whole set.

I saw their last two songs at sasquatch the other year and they were so freaking awesome. I missed them on accident 'cause i read the schedule wrong and ended up watching some shitty band for most of their set before i realized i could hear "dummy discards a heart" coming from somewhere obviously magical. so i ran there as fast i could and saw about 2 songs.

and what a two songs they were! hoo boy



also: this has almost nothing to do with anything but have you guys ever listened to Shapes Like Dinosaurs? Because you should really really listen to Shapes Like Dinosaurs. I wrote about fifteen draft sentences here to try to explain why they are so great, but I gave up because i couldn't do it. At least not effectively.

unfortunately, youtube doesn't have very much by them, but you can listen to one of my favorite songs by them "Dinostomping Parts I-IV" on Last.fm (seriously listen to that song all the way through; it's wonderful)

okay, and watch this and this
and maybe this if you're up for it: here's a live song the first half of which I don't think is recorded (besides by that video, i mean)


anyway, they're like one of my favorite fucking bands and I want to help other people experience even a fraction of the joy that this band has brought me, if they're able to, because it's excellent

I know this is way up the thread, but I'm kind of sad to see Women getting so little love. Public Strain was way up there for me as far as albums released in 2010 go. I was really upset when I heard they might be breaking up. Did that question ever get resolved? Are they together, or what?

Deerhoof was my first live show, on my 16th birthday, and it was really disappointing. It was the first day of the Offend Maggie tour. The two opening acts were just bad and went on way too long. I don't know if this was just the kind of crowd that stood around with their arms crossed all the time or if the openers just pissed them off, but the audience just was not giving the band any energy to feed off of. Everyone just seemed pissed at each other. And one dick in front of me kept calling them "Deerfoot."

I still love their records(although I felt Deerhoof Vs. Evil was a bit lacklustre), and i would love to see them with a more responsive audience.

E: I really enjoyed Women's first record, but Public Strain just left me feeling cold.

Jay Reatard's crew quit before joining the Wavves dude, so there's no great injustice there.

I'm still waiting for that Juavves full-length over here.

Actually it wasn't but thanks for playing.


Tommy, I remember stumbling over that Tape-op article when I was doing a studio internship a few years ago! It was a big part of why I was very strongly in the anti-Deerhoof camp for a while there. I sincerely hope you do manage to find + scan it, I'd like to read it again to see if it evokes the same reaction in me as it did the first time.

It's okay to not like a band but being insulting or making threads specifically to display ignorance is a bizarre way of operating. Start a thread about music you do like, especially rather than about a band which is so incredibly easy to ignore.

But hate is so much more fun!  :mrgreen:

To be honest, it was more to express puzzlement at what made them good. That, and to hope people would bring up something with them that was actually more to my liking. Lots of bands have that one song I don't like.

My Deerhoof turning point was "Scream Team" on The Runner's Four. I was halfway through the album and was in the "yeah they rock, but..." category, until I finally understood the role of Satomi's vocals in the band. I then literally stopped the album and started over and it quickly became a favorite of mine.

How are the last two albums? I was pretty much around for Runner's Four and Friend Opportunity but haven't really given a fair shake to Offend Maggie or Deerhoof vs. Evil.

I would add Reveille to the list of quintessential Deerhoof records. You have the experimental noisy tracks ("No One Fed Me So I Stayed"), the straight-out rock numbers ("Holy Night Fever"), the songs who shift between dynamics ("This Magnificient Bird Will Rise"). What's not to like! I believe it's as good, if not better, but that's my opinion, as Milk Man, Apple O', and The Runners Four.
