Deerhoof: Getting Their Hooves Into Everything


If you missed Henry Rollins KCRW broadcast last month where he played the new and much-anticipated Deerhoof release, Deerhoof vs. Evil in its entirety, the self-produced album is now available (for your ascension into awesomeness), as is their pretty picture on the cover of The Wire, with a full interview with the mysterious band on the glossy inside detailing dark secrets and the troubles of being 16 years old—as a band, that is. You can also set your crosshairs for these wild animals on tour in the U.S. and Europe beginning in Sacramento, CA on January 27th.

MGMT Get Eclectic

KCRW’s ‘Morning Becomes Eclectic’ has just posted both streaming audio and video of MGMT’s in studio performance from this week on their website. I have been watching their performance in video form and its really stellar. The Brooklyn band has really come a long way since I saw them live opening for Of Montreal in October last year. At that time, I wasn’t really sure what to make of them live. Maybe it was because I was just wanting to see Of Montreal, but for some reason, I didn’t love them. MGMT is so much tighter now since they’ve gained more touring experience. If you don’t own a copy of their “Oracular Spectacular” you should pick one up. MGMT has put out one of the greatest records i’ve heard all year.

MGMT is also on tour opening for Beck and will be playing Webster Hall on October 30th in New York City.
