The San Francisco indie rock sweethearts in Deerhoof will release their latest 14-track offering, Offend Maggie, next month. In the meantime, we are bringing you the introspective album’s namesake track to download. For this short-but-sweet song, the band has paired singer/bassist Satomi Matsuzaki’s endearing vocals with contrasting harmonies from drummer Greg Saunier over John Dieterich’s beautiful and detailed acoustic guitar work. The result is a classically deerhoofian pop-rock lullaby with memorable hooks that will “ring, ring” (like Matsuzaki on the chorus) in your head long after the song has floated away. Lulu McAllister
