Trust Me Deerhoof, We Are More Than Friends

Not content to put out another ace album in the form of The Magic earlier in the year, the inimitable Deerhoof are gifting us this new 7", I Thought We Were Friends, just before Christmas! A Side 'Risk Free' is breezy, blase pop, Satomi joined by Greg in a languid ballad that still fits in a tetchy Tortoise bassline, spiky Deerhoof vocalisation patterns and terse organ downplay in the final third, while the crunch and groove of 'Delight' kicks in like a proto glam basement dweller, bastardised garage rock recorded on a broken tape deck. They are truly one of a kind, continue to put out intricate, zany, out there, insanely addictive noise pop, are supporting the Red Hot Chili Peppers (really!) and are playing a one off London show at Village Underground next year (Monday Feb 6).
