CRITIC REVIEWS

Beats Per Minute

These are unconventional songs about unconventional heartache. And just as every person reacts differently in different situations, so too does Deerhoof.

80
Drowned in Sound

Breakup Song is as original and uncompromising as anything else Deerhoof have done. 

80
Consequence of Sound

On this album, Deerhoof get into your veins, smash the ice off of your broken heart, inject some saccharine bounce, and get out again without a moment of hesitation. 

80
The 405

This is an album that doesn't just throw caution to the wind, but stamps on it after it's fallen to the floor, and then misspells its name on its grave

80
No Ripcord

What’s astonishing about Breakup Song is how it maintains an intuitive notion of coherence, even with its handling of contradictions. All the while making it look easy. 

80
musicOMH

It’s a bright, brief, crystalline work that is a more than worthy addition to one of the most consistently excellent catalogues in alternative music.

80
NME

No-wave krunch meets mutant disco shuffle meets snippets of global radness and, yeah, it’s better than Animal Collective’s new one. 

80
PopMatters

They just feel more well honed this time around, conveying their music in simple, direct terms.

72
Pitchfork

There are patches of tedium, but the best moments are both surprising and engaging.

67
A.V. Club

A rough band presenting its smoothest listen, a guitar band sacrificing free jam for boxed beats, and a prog band’s attempt to dial down the aural kudzu
