San Francisco's Deerhoof has been at it since the mid-90's, crafting its unique noise-pop over the course of multiple albums and singles, with numerous compilations and one-off tracks littered throughout. The foursome remains democratic, shifting attention equally amongst its parts, melding high-energy performances with solid musicianship at every point. Despite the equality in the ranks, what most often stands out is the vocal stylings of lead singer Satomi Matsuzaki. With her lilting, child-like delivery of lyrics and wordless choruses both nonsensical and charmingly coy, you may forget something far more mature is unfolding.
Deerhoof performs alongside People Get Ready and The Demos Saturday, April 13, 9 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $15. waterstreetmusic.com.
