Some of you may have already found out that Deerhoof have posted a free, quasi-official release on their website, available to download or stream. It contains remixes, live takes, and the like. It's nice and all, but the real treat is the EPIC (and I mean epic) journal they posted detailing just about everything they did from 2006 and onward. This includes tour* tales from their stints with Radiohead, The Flaming Lips, Busdriver, Harlem Shakes, OOIOO, Fiery Furnaces and on and on. They also discuss the working done on their recent Friend Opportunity LP as well as provide a plethora of youtube related clips and pictures of their adventures.
So yeah, Deerhoof rule. But that's nothing new.
*Is it me or do they never take a break? They have essentially toured nonstop this entire year and are probably recording another amazing album when their not. Their work ethic puts most bands to shame.
