One of the albums of the year?
Watch them on Carson Daly!
there's always a couple moments of genius of every record, but they're just surrounded by acres of unfocused noodling. plus, their fans always look really dour. no offence, like.
and then phases of finding everything they do amazing. They don't make me dour though.
Are you waiting for The Best Of Deerhoof then?
as each album is pretty distinct.
my favourite record they've done is Green Cosmos, which is an EP, which is telling.
One of the best. I haven't heard a crap song by em.
Not enough people jump around and sing along at the gigs though!
My favourite song on Friend Opportunity is probably the "I would sell my soul to devil, if I could be on top of the world" (or whatever she sings) one.
i hadn't noticed she was singing that, good lyric.
"I will sell my song to devil, if I could be a choco flower"
50-50 chance innit
that you agree with me on this
to feel that your opinion is validated, you're in trouble...
I played it at my six-year-old cousin's birthday party. They all laughed at Kiz Are So Small. My existence has been officially validated.
still havent yet - I hate being skint :(
The Runners Four is better. Some of that is completely amazing.
but The Runner's Four is just too good.
It kind of defines what is possible with bass, drums and guitars in my opinion
Every guitar band that forms should listen to The Runners Four and Marquee Moon, innit. And then go, "fuck it, let's not bother"
if not my favorite album of the year.
The production is amazing and each song is varied yet the whole album is really coherent.
