Deerhoof from me first this week. I've been a long time admirer of this kooked-out lady-led collective. Their fractured spazz core of yore is much more subtle these days. In it's place Offend Maggie's opening number reminds Brett of 'Alright Now' by Free but with a chirupping lady of Oriental extraction trilling all over the place. Their distinctive angular prog sound clatters appealingly, the drums sharp, the time changes sharper still, their bendy pop/rock a welcome shot in the neck as always. Throughout the album quirky sing-song vocal harmonies collide with some spiky alt-pop gems, whilst more melancholic hues caress chunks of brooding math-flecked rock. The thing that strikes me here is that the song writing quality is way back up there after the relatively unfocussed & irritating 'Runners Four' & 'Friend Opportunity'. The guitars are looser, rockier and quirkier whilst the drums are giddy, dead playful, jazzy only in minor flourish ways. It's all in all a great distillation of their sound and it's quite delightful to hear them back on form, keeping it well interesting but spilling with pop nous. Hoofing great stuff, the best collection of theirs since 'Green Cosmos'. CD for now with the LP to come later..
