Following the release of their EP I Thought We Were Friends last year Deerhoof are set to announce their brand new album Mountain Moves which will be out in September via Joyful Noise and will feature this new track ‘Your Dystopic Creation Doesn’t Fear You’.
The new track also features rapper Awkwafina and contains a huge sense of gripping guitar and tempo changes to add juxtaposition to the Queens rapper’s verse. Speaking of the track, the band said: “In the span of 10 short days last April, Prince passed away, and Bill Clinton shouted down a small group of black women who dared question the morality of 90s legislation with which he ushered in the era of unprecedented mass incarceration that continues to this day. Something about the random concurrence of Prince’s glowing obituaries and Clinton’s elitist intimidation tactics seemed to point at an absurd contradiction at the heart of America’s treatment of its citizens of color”.
They continued: “Fortunately a favorite writer, The Guardian’s great Steven W. Thrasher, helped make sense of these events in his crucial commentaries: “Prince broke all the rules about what black American men should be” and “How dare Bill Clinton shout over Black Lives Matter protesters?”
