    For those who have not listened but are familiar with Deerhoof's previous albums that seem to balance/blend experimental music with pop music, this album leans more towards the experimental end although there are still plenty of really catchy moments.

    It is so much fun to hear how Deerhoof is always coming up with creative sounds on every one of their new releases. No two albums sound redundant, making them a perpetually fresh and exciting band to listen to.

    A ragged, gnarly listen, Future Teenage Cave Artists is, fittingly, one of the band’s most experimental offerings in years, offering short bursts of breakneck, catchy garage rock, counterbalanced by plenty of reverb-drenched dissonance and eerie atmospherics. Just as it feels like it may be settling into something approaching conventional songcraft, the band chucks in a blast of competing ideas that sound like they’re eating each other alive, desperately scrambling for survival.

    As disorienting as Future Teenage Cave Artists gets, it packs a potent emotional wallop.

    In Future Teenage Cave Artists’ hectic, crammed-to-the-brim structure, Johann Sebastian gives Deerhoof listeners something they have been methodically denied: space to process the music.
