Deerhoof // New, Improved, Live – Session 1

Deerhoof // New, Improved, Live   Session 1
Ed Rodriguez tuning up for the session

New, Improved, Live is a multimedia series launched by TheBayBridged.com and New, Improved Recording. Every month, they invite a popular indie band to their studio in Oakland and record an exclusive live session.

They chose eclectic San Francisco quartet Deerhoof for their first show. The band recorded 4 tracks: ‘Giga Dance’, ‘The Great Car Tomb’, ‘Let’s Dance The Jet’ and ‘Milking.’ You have the option to download the songs (free) @ 160kbps or 320kbps. The sound is terrific. They also have video footage of the session and a Q&A with Deerhoof drummer Greg Saunier (click here). New, Improved, Live is off to a great start.

From the new issue of death + taxes magazine.

Things To Make One Feel Better:
“Eat an ice cream sandwich in the shower. If that does not work, then: Travel to Little Rock, Arkansas and wait for something outrageous to happen and then look at the person next to you and say, “Only in New York.” If that does not work, try: When you see someone reading People or US Weekly magazine try lighting it on fire. Get a GED for a lawn mower. Open a locksmith company and call it Sure Lock Homes. Let diarrhea just happen — where and whenever. Tell your parents that even though they have ruined your last six Christmases you sill think they are wonderful.”
