I'm finally getting around to putting up this week's mp3's. In honor of my favorite show of the year, here are two live tracks from the Kill Rock Stars band Deerhoof. Taken from their September 15, 2002 show in Berkeley are "This Magnificent Bird Will Rise" and "Dummy Discards A Heart." These are great songs to start the new year.

Deerhoof is one of a short list of bands that I berate friends to see live. Their live shows are a musical fireworks display that simply should not be missed, full of deconstructed pop masterpieces and bursting with sloppy energy.

Favorite show? Berkeley? Are you living in the Bay Area, David?

Some days I wish I was living in the Bay area, but I'm still happily settling into north Alabama.

I saw Deerhoof a couple of times this year, in Chicago and Atlanta. They were by far my favorite live shows of 2003.
