There are several pretty great things about the holiday season: loved ones, snow (in moderation), minimal stressors (no class!), presents, holiday cheer, etc. This holiday season we have also had a good helping of New Years leaks! Coming at you from 2011 a few weeks early have been several stellar albums that I can’t wait to pickup when they come out forreals. But you know what has been seriously dope lately? The new Deerhoof album Deerhoof vs. Evil!
Ohmigosh lemme just tell you that this album is making my days all kinds of interesting. This record is SO EFFING RICH, featuring roughly 10,000 different sounds, from maracas to rock’n’roll to Satomi Matsuzaki’s signature bipolar vox (playful girlie to angsty femme fatale).
And as an added bonus, Deerhoof has been leaking the album one track at a time since October, and you can stream the majority of the album here! Keep an eye out for the whole U.S. release on January 25, 2011.
