Published Jul 04, 2011Eclectic experimental rockers Deerhoof are in the middle of one of the busiest years of their career. In the last few months, they issued their Deerhoof vs. Evil LP, embarked upon the Congotronics vs. Rockers tour and announced a split seven-inch series. While earlier entries in that series featured guests like rapper Busdriver's band, Physical Forms, a newly announced instalment has the group working with a modern rock icon: Wilco main man Jeff Tweedy.
Not much has been revealed about the slab of wax just yet, but Deerhoof's label home of Polyvinyl Records has confirmed that the alt-country star will be joined on the seven-inch by sons Spencer and Sam. While more details will announced sometime soon, you can take solace in the fact that Deerhoof drop their most current split, with art rockers WOOM, tomorrow (July 5).
In other news, if you can't make it out to any of the European Congotronics gigs, you will be glad to know that a documentary is being made chronicling the trip. You can check out a teaser of the upcoming film, Kinshasa Superband, which features interviews with Deerhoof, below. A release date has not yet been set for the flick.
Deerhoof have also announced some more U.S. dates for the fall, which you can peep here.
