I remember describing Deerhoof to my wife as a blend of the best parts of Sonic Youth, Mice Parade and Cibo Matto. Knowing that she likes all of these bands a lot, I told her that she’d love Deerhoof. The CD is on the way, so we’ll see how she feels. They’ve been on my list of must buy albums for about 3 years now, so I felt it was time to make the commitment and actually own an album by Deerhoof. I love the fact that they are able to take loud and raw sounds and intermingle them with open spaces and somewhat airy vocals. “Siriustar” in particular sounds like it could fall apart at any moment, which is what makes it so endearing to listen to.

As a follow-up to yesterday’s post, this track comes off the “What’s Up Matador” release as well. Helium broke up in 1998, but I find that I still like to rock their music. The fuzzy guitars and monotone delivery of Mary Timony are the signature sound of the band. I hear elements of Sleater-Kinney and Sonic Youth in their music which is probably why I’m drawn to it.

Kim Deal and Kim Gordon combine forces to create a sweet-sounding song that borders on the edge of disturbing. Innocence and hopelessness mingle together to create a memorable song from the influential experimental band Sonic Youth.
