Rewrite Deerhoof’s Music
- Words: Maverick Newberry
Never a band to market itself traditionally (see last year's sheet music for the single "Fresh Born"), Deerhoof has yet another out-of-the-ordinary project for its fans, and it involves sheet music again.
"Buck and Judy," off 2008's Offend Maggie, is the track in question this time. Deerhoof has posted audio, sheet music, and guitar tabs to online music community Indaba's site and invites users to play along. Vocals, drums, bass, guitars, and piano stems of the track can be downloaded, rearranged, or even deleted. Finished tracks should be posted to the mixdown section of the site. Knowing Deerhoof, there might just be a few songs uploaded that will inspire the band to play along. Hell, maybe a few versions will crop up in the live setting.
And speaking of which, the band has a few dates announced for spring, with more to follow shortly.
