New Deerhoof: "+81"
The new cover art for Friend Opportunity is pretty awesome.
We here at Skatterbrain don't get too too overly excited about upcoming releases, but as Deerhoof's upcoming album Friend Opportunity draws nearer and nearer we can't help but let our inner fan-boy run wild. Friend Opportunity will be out January 23, 2007 on Kill Rock Stars! That's still a ways away, but it's never too early to ridiculously excited about it. Another reason to be ridiculously excited about it is this new song, set to appear on the new album.
If this isn't old school Deerhoof then I don't know what else would be! "+81" opens with huge trumpet blasts and marching band snare rolls which are soon abruptly cut off by a sharp guitar, and then a few more, and then a couple after that. The trumpets make another appearance before Satomi begins the chorus what else but "CHOO CHOO CHOO CHOO BEEP BEEP" over and over again. Friend Opportunity is just going be amazing. No other word for it.
