A song for today #45: Deerhoof feat Jenn Wasner

I’m surprised to discover that apparently in nearly eleven years (count ’em!) of writing this blog, I appear not to have covered Deerhoof, although their track ‘Life Is Suffering’ did make last year’s Festive Fifty. The band are shortly to release their new album Mountain Moves, on September 8.

The first track to be released is the politically charged ‘I Will Spite Survive’ which features vocals from Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner. ‘Sleep at night, if you can stay awake,’ the band reflect. It would be nice to think they’ll reach new fans with this album. (which I am very excited for!)

The track can be streamed below:

1. “Slow Motion Detonation” (feat. Juana Molina)

  1. I heard this last night on Marc Riley’s show and was very impressed. There are some interesting looking covers and guests on the album.
