ORGAN THING: Deerhoof order breakfast and release a taste of their new album, meanwhile down by the canal…

Thing of the day?  Too many choice to order breakfast, with all this delicious earfood to choose from good lord, we do get some awful awful music cluttering up our in-box, what on earth makes you record company people and such think want any of this spoiling our day, what makes you imagine we’re going to cover any of this or inflict it on those tasteful enough read these fractured raving and droolings? Who the hell is Taylor Swift anyway? Why did you waste thirty seconds of my day with that poorly manufactured blandness just then?  Do you really like this faceless tedium you peddle at us? You surely don’t go home from work and listen to this stuff out of choice do you? Sure I know it can be a buzz working in the industry and the music business game is what you get off on rather than the actual music (or product as you like ot call call it). hang on enough of the product, here’s some music, fresh Deerhoof just emerged, an excellent breakfast choice….


The various Deerhoofs spent much of the last year creating different earfood in their various side projects: Greg Saunier hung around with Sean Lennon is Mystical Weapons; Satomi Matsuzaki played a few solo shows, including one at Philip Glass’ Philippines benefit concert; John Dieterich did things as Bad News from Houston; and Ed Rodriguez  got involved in some remix work. On November 4th, however, the band San Francisco we all know and love as Deerhoof will release their 12th studio album, La Isla Bonita. “Serving as the follow-up to 2012’s Breakup Song, the 10-track effort was produced by Nick Sylvester (formerly of Mr. Dream) and draws upon a wide array of influences, including Beck, Radiohead, The Flaming Lips, Lou Reed, Sonic Youth, and more”.


In a statement, Saunier said, “No band is an island. Felt like one sometimes, in those budgetless and obscure early days, Satomi and me locked in the basement trying to figure out how our clashing personalities and ideas could turn into a band. If we hadn’t had that crazed mid-’90s Bay Area punk scene to call home, I doubt we’d still be here to chat about a 20th anniversary. We don’t set out to create masterpieces. The Deerhoof fan is a thrill-seeker. This is the latest volley in an ongoing conversation we’ve been honored to hold for 20 years.”

The first taste of the LP comes via its lead single, “Exit Only”. After exploring the realm of electronica with Breakup Song, Deerhoof emphatically return to their roots of blitzing, occasionally gritty rock. “Drums pop like small arms fire, guitars surge like industrial-sized chainsaws, and Matsuzaki’s vocals are as deceptively childlike as ever. It’s a straight shot of saccharine-flavored dissonance, like mainlining a couple dozen Pixy Stix in one sitting”.

Right, that’s my lazy cut ‘n paste is done, you got your breakfast earfood, you got the information, we never promised anything more than that with this born again version of Organ, we certainly didn’t promise jetpacks or whoever Taylor Swift is…. Right, things to deal with, got to go see the duck (down by the canal,, Hackney, East London ), long live the good ship Deerhoof and all who choose to breakfast with her… .
