and New, Improved Recording are proud to announce the launch of New, Improved, LIVE, a monthly series of live studio sessions with top indie bands, recorded at the New, Improved Recording studio in Oakland, California. Our first session features the Bay Area’s own Deerhoof, with free high-quality mp3s, photos, and videos from the session exclusively available right here.

With a rich history in the Bay Area scene, it seemed only natural to invite Deerhoof in for the first New, Improved, LIVE session. The group is, after all, known worldwide for its unconventional indie rock sound and consistently excellent albums, like last year’s Offend Maggie (Kill Rock Stars). Their N,I,L set below includes highlights from their rich catalog alongside an exciting cover of “Let’s Dance The Jet”, an obscure song from the 1967 film The Day The Fish Came Out. As you’ll hear in the mp3s, the session captures the energy of the band’s live performances as expertly engineered, mixed and mastered by the New, Improved Recording team.

For even more, check out photos and video from the session, along with an interview with Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier at our New, Improved, LIVE page!
