Joyful Noise Recordings

Released 31.03.23







For a band that’s been around for 30 years it is indeed a miracle that this is the first album from Deerhoof after 18 fabulously intricate releases that’s been put together entirely in a studio with a producer, namely Canadian Mike Bridavsky, designer of the No Fun Club studio, who asked the band to exit their usual self-assembly comfort zone and work with him.

The resulting collaboration is a collection of powerful, mathematically delicate constructions from a truly unique perspective; an added bonus, it’s delivered in Japanese, the native tongue of lyricist Satomi Matsuzaki, exploring themes of the miraculous found in the common and the everyday, oftentimes with a wry cynical edginess belying their true nature and fragility in their fascination.
