Consistency should be a band’s main objective. No artist wants to be known for putting out only a few gems during an extensive career. San Francisco act Deerhoof blends punk, psychedelia, art rock and a whole lot of experimentalism for an uncanny sound. They’ve been doing it in a DIY fashion since the mid-90s and their 13th studio album, The Magic, lives up to its name. The record is a testament to a prolific band who are always pushing themselves to attain something new and different.
