DEERHOOF''s "Milk Man" is being reissued on vinyl in celebration of the band''s upcoming All Tomorrow''s Parties performance of the album this July in London (alongside The Flaming Lips and Dinosaur Jr). The starting point for "Milk Man" was a cartoon character created by Japanese artist Ken Kagami, a longtime friend of Deerhoof vocalist Satomi Matsuzaki. In contrast to the earnest guitar rock that predominated on their previous album "Apple O''", "Milk Man" featured a broad palette of orchestral colors, echoes of music theater and camp, polished and gaudy arrangements, Stravinskian harmonies, and a more stylized, anonymous playing style resulting partly from recording most of the instruments at separate times rather than playing together as a band, and partly from many of the arrangements being created in a computer. Critical praise for "Milk Man" came notably from NME and Spin. The song "Milk Man" was chosen in 2009 as one of Pitchfork''s top tracks of the decade. Limited to 1000 copies on 180-gram banana colored vinyl. Includes digital download code of the album. Includes new mixes and sequencing not included on the original LP. TRACKLISTING: 01. MILK MAN 02.
