Deerhoof's New Album 'Offend Maggie'

October 8, 2008

San Francisco-based indie rock band Deerhoof just released their new album "Offend Maggie" from the Kill Rock Stars label. Lead singer Satomi Matsuzaki sings in both English and Japanese and, according to this Entertainment Weekly review, "nearly every tune sports a hummable melody — many of them sublime — which makes this album one of the more accessible entries in Deerhoof's willfully strange catalog. It's music that'll set your head spinning without making it ache."

Check out the band's official website for tour dates and the "Ask Deerhoof" feature.
