Deerhoof - Future Teenage Cave Artists

Deerhoof is one of those acts whose music has always intrigued me but never fully caught my attention enough to dig deeper. I've only ever listened to their 2005 release The Runners Four, which is perhaps even more outrageous than Future Teenage Cave Artists, which is unbelievably their fifteenth studio album.

This shouldn't lead you into their newest record expecting something tame, as this is far from the case. Future Teenage Cave Artists is just about as eclectic as indie rock music comes, utilizing often odd time signatures and interesting instrumental choices and almost whispery vocals. As avant garde as the whole scenario is, there is this constant feeling of melody and harmony throughout all the chaotic and improvisational methodology. It's peaceful in its whimsy, almost soothing as you try to attach to yourself to the often difficult to grasp sounds.

This is by no means an album that clicks right away. It's going to take some time to really feel like Future Teenage Cave Artists has processed. Some of the best music requires this level of dedication and attention; Deerhoof effectively not necessarily demanding your attention but nudging you to press forward.

Favorite track: O Ye Saddle Babes
