Deerhoof Releases Single as Sheet Music
Forget remix contests. This week's award for most creative promotion of an album goes to the members of Deerhoof, who are releasing the first single off the forthcoming Offend Maggie as... sheet music.
Fans are asked to download the score to "Fresh Born," record their own version of the song, then upload it to their webpage or blog and post the link on the band's website. No one's promising any prizes, but you can listen to other people's tracks and who doesn't want a hand in helping a band craft and shape its sound? Offend Maggie, meanwhile, will hit stores on October 6 in the U.K. October 7 in the U.S.
Behold, the aforementioned sheet music:
