The Magic is the thirteenth studio album by Deerhoof, released in June 2016 through Polyvinyl. In April 2016, Deerhoof announced The Magic, its first studio album since their 2014 La Isla Bonita. Joseph Baughman created the music video for the album's "The Devil and his Anarchic Surrealist Retinue". Baughman described his style as a slow-motion improvisation. The clay animated video features chessboard pieces and multicolored minotaurs.

It should be no surprise then that The Magic stands out from the rest of their output while still being another Deerhoof record. But unlike on those records, which each featured plenty of synths and a number of soft spotlight pop moments, The Magic-recorded in seven days in an abandoned office in a New Mexico desert-is one of their loosest and most rock-influenced records yet, with the guitars placed front and center.

1. The Devil and his Anarchic Surrealist Retinue Lyrics.

The Magic is a superb pop album. It doesn't relinquish substance for catchiness and doesn't dive head-first into reckless abandon throwing any semblance of cohesiveness to the dogs. It's in this fine balance between control and abandon, tension and resolution, that Deerhoof thrive.

Album · 2016 · 15 Songs. Plastic Thrill is another mutant glitter rock smash-like something from Iggy’s Raw Power rolled up in cotton candy. It’s no surprise that Deerhoof’s party album is also their most danceable. Debut is a brilliant amalgam of burping funk, garage rock drums, and giddy noise. If you like your cacophony served with a dose of cheerful delirium and childlike wonder, it doesn’t get better than Little Hollywood.

With newest album The Magic, though, Deerhoof haven’t progressed much from La Isla Bonita, instead pinning down its stabbing guitars and infusing their most melodic moments with dazzling synthetic flourishes. The result is a collection that, for once, often sees Deerhoof in a previously established comfort zone; its biggest surprise is that it’s Deerhoof’s most enjoyable album in nearly a decade. The third song Deerhoof released to promote The Magic, Dream paves its intro via gorgeous, ghostly synths that segue into a steady groove of fuzz-fried bass and guitars prancing forward at an ample tempo. An eventual slide back into the synthy ambience of the song’s introduction underlies Matsuzaki’s consistently tender vocals, some of her most beautiful to date.

Or, to put it another way: Deerhoof have been releasing records for over twenty years, emerging from the fringes of San Francisco’s punk rock scene but harbouring musical tastes and horizons way beyond that.
