5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic departure, A beautiful surprise!, 6 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Breakup Song (Audio CD)
As a long time deerhoof listener I have to say that they have surprised me again! I have been listening to deerhoof since I grabbed a copy of their early album The man the king the girl and I have owned every album since!

Every album has an interesting take, A different way in approaching the sound and this remains case in breakup song. The whole album has a more electronic feel, sounds samples rather than straight up recorded parts. It also has a lovely taste of their recording techniques, Hearing whats sounds like an album recorded in many locations but with a minimal set up. I imagine that this was recorded in each of their flats/appartments with no more than 3 mics used at once!

As you can tell I'm a recording engineer and I'm focusing on the production aspects But let me assure you, the performance is superb!

If you like their rock/thrashy guitar sound then miss this one. But if you like being surprised by music and love a change in tone and sound then check this out as you wont be dissapointed.

I'm sitting in wait for them to return to the sound of The return of the wood M'lady 7" I picked up recently as it blew me away!
