After wowing crowds and playing an unscheduled but highly demanded second date at ATP's Nightmare Before Christmas festival, San Francisco's Deerhoof gears up for the digital release of its +81 EP, which is available starting today. The collection of unreleased tracks and b-sides features razor-sharp riffs and some old favorites of the bands that date all the way back to 1999. It's a nice teaser before the release of the band's full length, Friend Opportunity, due out January 23, 2007 on Kill Rock Stars.

The +81 EP is out available for download now at iTunes, eMusic, and Napster.
