Like the Jeff Tweedy-featured “Behold a Raccoon in the Darkness” before it, “No One Asked Bazan to Dance” finds Deerhoof reworking a track off Deerhoof Vs. Evil with a guest vocalist. As you might have guessed from its title, the tune in question features David Bazan, of Headphones and Pedro the Lion.
Bazan sounds right at home over the finger-twisting guitars and stripped-down instrumentation, crooning melancholy lyrics about scraping by and missing his kids and his wife. In addition to this news, Deerhoof is also hitting the road with of Montreal and Kishi Bashi. You can stream the track below and purchase the vinyl single at Polyvinyl while the tour dates are underneath the Souncloud widget.
