Paste Magazine raves of Deerhoof's new album, Vs Evil:
“Deerhoof never ceases to amaze. The band strikes a near-perfect balance between oddball accessibility and brazenly challenging their listeners to accept new and jarring sounds. The key word here is balance, between opposing forces: the past and the future, the human and the mechanical, the male and the female, the composed and the improvised, the crystalline and the obscured, the assonant and the dissonant.
So it's funny, and a bit ironic, that the band named its new album Deerhoof vs. Evil, as if its sound was merely a stand-in for the powers of “good,” when really it's a much more all-encompassing blend of Yang and Yin.
From the opening track, singer Satomi Matsuzaki's sweet, ethereal voice and the band's erratic machine-blast music repeatedly smash into each other with the cataclysmic energy of particles shot through the Large Hadron Collider. The album's synthetic flesh courses with the futuristic sounds of cutting-edge technology, while remaining fused to an organic skeleton of traditional global sounds, from flamenco to funk, Tropicalia to all-American riff rock.”
