DEERHOOF - New 7”s, Reissues, Congotronic Vs. Rockers News & More!

Deerhoof’s Milk Man is being reissued on vinyl in celebration of the band’s upcoming All Tomorrow’s Parties performance of the album this July in London (alongside The Flaming Lips and Dinosaur Jr.).
A 180-gram strawberry vinyl version will be available in stores on July 5thand limited to 1000 copies.
The starting point for Milk Man was a cartoon character created by Japanese artist Ken Kagami, a longtime friend of Deerhoof vocalist Satomi Matsuzaki.
In contrast to the earnest guitar rock that predominated on their previous album Apple O', Milk Man featured a broad palette of orchestral colors, echoes of music theater and camp, polished and gaudy arrangements, Stravinskian harmonies, and a more stylized, anonymous playing style resulting partly from recording most of the instruments at separate times rather than playing together as a band, and partly from many of the arrangements being created in a computer.

Critical praise for Milk Man came notably from NME and Spin, and the song "Milk Man" was chosen in 2009 as one of Pitchfork's top tracks of the decade.
Polyvinyl has a special pre-order package deal on these releases. Visit PolyvinylRecords.com for more information.
