Hoofdriver Is As Awesome As Name Implies


Although honestly, a couple of the other combinations sound way cooler. Formed as a 7″ between Deerhoof and Busdriver (MC Regan Farquhar), Hoofdriver features Busdriver recording new lyrics and vocals over the Deerhoof’s song “I Did Crimes For You.”

But really, Hoofdriver is the best one? What about Busdeer? Or Deerbus? Or Deerdriver? The compilation formed when Deerhoof accidently sent Farquhar the wrong instrumental track to sing over. By the time they realized their mistake, Busdriver had already recorded lyrics too awesome to ignore.

The 7″ will be out on a limited 1,000 copy-run in yellow vinyl. Meanwhile, Deerhoof have also released a new track from their two-month CD release party. The song “Must Fight Current” can be found over at www.deerhoofvsevil.com

Another Week, Another Deerhoof Song

Indie-rockers Deerhoof have found a way to stretch out a CD release day into…a couple months.

The band, premiering one song a week until January 25th (when you get the whole CD), released the song “Must Fight Current” today. In addition, the band has given us the details of their upcoming tour which kicks off just after the holidays.

You can check out the newest song from the album right here.

You can see Deerhoof playing more than just one song (hopefully!) at the following. I’ve heard tickets make great stocking stuffers.

Florence + The Machine To Hit Saturday Night Live

So far, 2010 has been kind for Florence + The Machine. Not only were they picked to contribute to the new Twilight soundtrack, they will be the musical guests for Saturday Night Live near the end of November.

Joining host Ann Hathaway, Florence + The Machine will be live from New York on November 20th. I’m guessing the new song from the Twilight soundtrack will be on the playlist. In case you haven’t heard it, here is the music video for Florence + The Machine’s “Heavy In Your Arms” from Twilight: Eclipse.
