Deerhoof "Gut Symmetries feat. Zac Pennington"
- Words: Jennifer Marston
Initially made as a conceptual follow-up to Portland-based Parenthetical Girls' debut album, (((GRRRLS))), Zac Pennington's orchestral pop masterpiece, Entanglements, has finally arrived. Already, a few friends, such as The Dead Sciences and fellow labelmates No Kids, have remixed or covered the haunting and sensual album. Not least of these contributions is Deerhoof's take on the string-swept "Gut Symmetries," which smartly keeps Pennington's timeless falsetto vocals in place. The sentimental 11-song "linear narrative of ascendancy, adolescent sexuality, quantum mechanics, consent, and other moral ambiguities" feels like an ideal match for Deerhoof. Lulu McAllister
