    Things may have to dismantle a bit after Fever's stunning mastery of the current setlist, but fans will always have it to look back on the energetic high point of the band's time with its current lineup.

    With a runtime that clocks in at just under 40 minutes and very little banter found in between tracks, Fever 121614 doubles as a great starting point into Deerhoof's extensive back catalogue and a showcase of the band's live strengths, all in one thrilling listen.

    Fever 121614, Live in Japan is a more than welcome artifact of Deerhoof's contemporary live show (unbelievably, the San Francisco group has been around for more than 20 years now), and is every bit as weird and compelling as it should be.

    Rather than reference the work they’ve made before, each project takes on a completely new form. Fever 121614 is no different, as Deerhoof harness their previous material, turn it on its anxious head, and perform it in a way that allows fresh life to creep in.

    The live-ness of the whole record includes the sense that, as it winds to a close, the listener is as spent as the band, determined to go one living even if one is not sure how.

    There's nothing interesting in this album...... the music is not bad, but there's nothing new either

Make no mistake - the energy isn't raw, it's finely tuned in such a way that shows the band's years-worth of experience, skill, and chemistry. Full Review »
