Deerhoof announce new album, The Magic, unveil “Plastic Thrills” — listen

Noise-pop outfit's latest full-length will arrive this summer


    Deerhoof have announced a new album titled The Magic. Spanning 15 tracks, it follows last year’s live record Fever 121614 and 2014’s La Isla Bonita. It was recorded over the course of seven days in the New Mexico desert and finds the band dreaming up “alchemies of punk, pop, glam, hair metal, doo-wop, hip hop, and R&B, late-night car rides, long days, attitude and spandex.”

    According to drummer Greg Saunier, The Magic recalls “what we liked when we were kids – when music was magic — before you knew about the industry and before there were rules. Sometimes hair metal is the right choice.” It’s due to arrive on July 15th via Polyvinyl.

    A few of the album’s tracks were originally penned for the HBO series Vinyl, including the band’s latest offering, a frenetic rock ‘n’ cut dubbed “Plastic Thrills”.
