Deerhoof - "Offend Maggie" - mp3
Today the title track off the new Deerhoof LP "Offend Maggie," debuted exclusively as the AOL Spinner free mp3 of the day. The full record, due October 7th (Kill Rock Stars,) plays out like a sprawling classic-rock-infused masterpiece. With Offend Maggie, the band continues its triumphant march towards full rock-stardom, channeling Rolling Stones-style guitar riffs through the filter of Deerhoof's own jagged and shifting sound. While the band manages to retain its own definitive and bold personality, Offend Maggie offers more accessible arrangements seeming to guarantee a huge year for this band. While more listens are certainly required, it seems that Offend Maggie is destined for many 'best of lists' at the year's end. Tour dates after the jump.
