    Episode 10, with Deerhoof (pt. 2)

    Whereas part one of this interview with Deerhoof touched on lighthearted subjects like stadium rock and DIY touring stories, part two delves into somewhat metaphysical territory... We discuss consciousness as it relates to the artistic process, and so much more. We get deep.

    Featuring music from the newly announced live album “Devil Kids”: https://deerhoof.bandcamp.com/album/devil-kids

    Hosted by Karl Hofstetter, founder and curator of Joyful Noise Recordings. Intro by David Woodruff, featuring music by El Ten Eleven. For more, visit joyfulnoiserecordings.com

    Episode 9, with Deerhoof (pt. 1)

    Today on the JN Radio hour, we will dive into one of the single most important bands making music today: Deerhoof. 

    This interview occurred during the first time all four band members of Deerhoof were in the same room nearly 2 years. They had just finished filming their new live-stream (their first ever in the band's history - premiering on Bandcamp Dec 12 2021). This is not a typical "live stream", but also a mini-documentary of sorts in which the band documents their experience of traveling and meeting up for the first time in ages, and performs many of their new songs live for the first time ever. 

    During the interview we discuss everything from practical DIY touring tips, the difference between stadium and arena rock, their experience touring with enormous bands like Radiohead and RHCP while traveling in a Prius or minivan, and what it’s like to start playing again after 2 years of isolation. The conversation was so fun in fact, that we had to split this into a 2-part episode.

    Featuring songs from the band’s newly released album 'Actually, You Can', and one sneak peek at a live song from the new Bandcamp event.

    Including the music by Mike Adams At His Honest Weight, and just about every Danielson related project over the past two decades.

    The Great Covid Vinyl Clog of 2022 (Bonus Episode)

    ---
    Being a label which has built a strong community around physical vinyl subscriptions over the last decade+, we were put in a rather difficult predicament when facing 2022 – a time when it takes anywhere from 7-14 months to create a traditional vinyl record... Do we fold to the pressures of post-covid life, or do we come up with some other way to keep this community together.

    The way we see it, this vinyl clog consists of at least five dimensions of supply chain disruption:

    1. Bigger bands who couldn’t tour in 2020 had delayed their album release are now submitting their mammoth volume orders only as quarantine started to ease up.

    2. A bunch of smaller independent artists whose income had been dependent on touring up to that point ALSO stayed home and made new albums. This segment includes virtually every working band on the planet, not to mention a bumper crop of new artists who’d leveraged quarantine time to write and produce their debuts.

    3. The professional bands from this segment who needed to find a way to replace touring income—most of them—felt additional pressure to put these albums out on vinyl.

    4. A random video of a guy skateboarding to work on TikTok catalyzed the re-entry of dinosaur legacy IP conglomerates into the vinyl space constipating the entire global infrastructure of record manufacturing with millions of copies of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumors, and a bunch of other records that are already so abundant in the bins at record stores and thrift shops all across the world that you could wallpaper your house with them without being disrespectful to history.

    5. All of these records hit the presses simultaneously at a moment when pandemic protocols in place at the factories were already slowing down production and—because vinyl manufacturing is actually more of an art than you would think—no skilled workers or machinists who were in a position to resolve or correct this failure of supply could be found.

    So, we were faced with a dilemma. And the only idea we had was to rely on our in-house 1940's era lathe-cutting machine to fill the gap.
