New Deerhoof Video : Fresh Born

Deerhoof's new album Offend Maggie may be a departure from what they have been doing in recent times, but that isn't to say that it isn't just as good. And it is. Their music has evolved from their own styles in the past, but on Offend Maggie, the band takes inspiration from throwback sounds and spins them in only the way they can. 

While Fresh Born isn't really the departure I mentioned, it is one of my favorite tracks on the album. The video for the song starts off with Deerhoof impersonators playing Basketball Get Your Groove Back (also on the new album) and evolves into the band playing Fresh Born in a studio with a psychedelic backdrop. The band plays their instruments in a very 1960's slapstick style and dancing on their heels and toes. It's pretty entertaining and the song is slick.

Offend Maggie is out October 7, on Kill Rock Stars.
