Deerhoof – “The Trouble With Candyhands”
August 3, 2012
Written by Ben Van Houten
Deerhoof drummer Greg here to introduce you to our latest record.
We’ve been called a lot of things, as you know. But pop has always marked the spot on the Deerhoof treasure map.
Pop = catchy
Pop = new
Pop = no rules
So if you want to go dancing or do karaoke with Deerhoof, you don’t have to ask twice.
We’ve just finished a sensational record of Cuban-flavored party-noise-energy music. We called it Breakup Song, but don’t expect a bunch of Grammy®-baiting sob stories, OK? In Deerhoof’s thesaurus, freedom’s just another word for feeling good again and raising hell and getting away with it. Stick with us and the bad guys with guns will never catch up.
