On June 16 experimental indie rockers Deerhoof played two shows at The Bell House, an early and late show. They played a few new songs off of their new album Mountain Moves, which they will release via Joyful Noise Recordings on September 8.

Our photographer Dave Scholten was at the late show (Deerhoof began their set around midnight) at The Bell House and captured photos of Deerhoof’s set. Find some photos posted below, along with the setlist.

[new]: Deerhoof – Exit Only

By Will Oliver, August 28th 2014


Deerhoof have announced that they will release new album La Isla Bonita on November 4 via Polyvinyl Records. The album features music tributes to musical heroes of theirs such as David Bowie, Ric Ocasek, The Roots, Lou Reed, David Byrne, Sonic Youth, The Flaming Lips, Radiohead, and Beck. All mighty good choices.

They’ve shared the heavy-hitting and somewhat straightforward (for Deerhoof anyway) first single “Exit Only.” The guitars chug in blissful manner working magically with Satomi Matsuzaki’s always familiar vocals.

Stream “Exit Only” below.

[new] Deerhoof – Super Duper Rescue Heads!

By Will Oliver, November 2nd 2010 — with 2 comments

Deerhoof are so cool, that they are going to leak a song from their new album, Deerhoof vs. Evil, every week until it’s January 25th  release date. How many bands can you say have done something like this? Not many. It’s cool to see bands find unique ways to adjust to this new era of music. It’s pretty exciting if you ask me. Head to this page to find more about “The Global Album Leak”.

“Super Duper Rescue Heads!” is this weeks leaked song. It’s streaming over at The Guardian. It’s a cool song that has the usual Deerhoof quirkiness. Yet, it may just be one of their most accessible moments yet. I’m really enjoying this. Stream it below, & let me know what you think:

[new] Deerhoof – The Merry Barracks

By Will Oliver, October 12th 2010 — with 1 comment

Deerhoof are back with their followup to 2008’s Offend Maggie. Their new album, Deerhoof vs. Evil is coming out next year on January 25th via Polyvinyl (while Joyful Noise will handle the limited run of cassette tapes).

You can stream album track “The Merry Barracks” below right now. It’s a song that the band self-recorded, just like the rest of the album. The band plays off each others strengths to create a quirky rocker full of tight riffs and unusual rhythms. In other words, it’s very Deerhoof.

Deerhoof Begin Recording New Album

By Will Oliver, June 10th 2010 — with 2 comments

Deerhoof quietly updated their myspace blog recently with info regarding the status of their new album. Just six days ago John Dieterich posted the following on the blog:

We’ve started!  Finally!  It’s been a couple weeks since we’ve gotten together and begun recording material for the next Deerhoof album and, even though I’m exhausted and can’t think straight, I can tell we’re onto something special.  We’ve got a few more weeks to try and get at least the basic ideas outlined.  My small brain is threatening to lose grasp of what we’ve done so far, but we’ve got a lot more to do….  Can’t wait til we can share it.

Deep in Recordingland,

Even before that in May, Greg Saunier posted this message:

We just started recording a new album yesterday. As usual nothing is usual. The only thing we know how to do is not know what to do. Sometimes I think the only thing we are becoming experts at is being beginners.

Which can be kind of fun: if you always try to do something you don’t know how to do, then you can have beginner’s luck again and again.

So it looks as though things are started to get underway. This would be the band’s 11th album, the first since 2008’s wonderful Offend Maggie. The title of John’s post in Planet Earth World. Could that be a hint at the possible album title? You never know with Deerhoof I suppose. Can’t wait to see how Deerhoof enter the new decade. I bet they will find a new way to re-invent themselves.

[New] Deerhoof – Chandelier Searchlight

By Will Oliver, October 8th 2008

Yesterday saw the release of Deerhoofs 10th album ‘Offend Maggie’. The band decided to release a video (and mp3) of the song ‘Chandelier Searchlight’ onto the internet accordingly. ‘Offend Maggie’ was the first time I really got into Deerhoof, so I may go pick up a copy of the album later today. You should to!

The video for ‘Chandelier Searchlight’ is a pretty strange video, but then again I woudn’t expect anything less from Deerhoof! MP3 and Video below!

[New] Deerhoof – Offend Maggie

By Will Oliver, September 9th 2008

I honestly have never “gotten” Deerhoof until this morning. My friends at Toolshed once again were kind enough to give me this track and I always give anything I get a listen. The main problem with Deerhoof until now, was that I didn’t understand how the vocals matched with the music. For some reason, it just never clicked with me. However with the track ‘Offend Maggie’ something finally hit with me. It has a deep driving bass line, quick acoustic guitars, and female vocals that rival the best of Blonde Redhead. This song is only 2 minutes long, so that could possibly be a reason for its instability with me.

Toolshead could not have described the new song any better!

Say what you will about Deerhoof, but they know how to write a beautiful song. And “Offend Maggie” is all the more beautiful for the fact that it seems to come out of nowhere. For all its sparkling musicanship, it sounds casually tossed off like it was nothing at all. It’s a new sound for the band as much as it’s a new sound for pop music.

Maybe that explains why it is sinking in. Bravo Deerhoof, most bands don’t get 2nd chances from me. If they do, it normally doesn’t change much. Their new album is also called ‘Offend Maggie’ and will be in stores on October 7th. It is getting critical acclaim from everyone from Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Q, NME, and The New York Times

Deerhoof is donating a percentage of digital sales royalties from ‘Offend Maggie’ to an important grassroots organization. They have narrowed the choices down to five:

1. Doctors Without Borders <>

2. FAIR <>

3. Peace Action West <>

4. Z Magazine <>

5. Why Tuesday? <>

Do the right thing and support one of those choices! Give the new single ‘Offend Maggie’ and stream/download below!
