Satomi Matsuzaki plays bass and sings, Greg Saunier plays drums, John Dieterich and Ed Rodriguez play
guitars. But what is Deerhoof really? Hell if we know. Pitchfork went so far as to label Deerhoof as "the best
band in the world." The New York Times described them as "one of the most original rock bands to have
come along in the last decade." From their humble beginnings as an obscure San Francisco noise act,
they've become one of indie music's most influential bands with their ecstatic and unruly take on pop.
Deerhoof has released 11 self-produced albums and continues to tour the world frequently. The members
of Deerhoof are Satomi Matsuzaki, John Dieterich, Ed Rodriguez and Greg Saunier.
I m half Indian, half Irish, half Swiss, and all American. So declared Nandi Rose Plunkett at seven years
of age: multiculturally misinformed. A decade and a half later, she still doesn t quite get ratios.
Half Waif is half a person and half an idea as yet in its formational phases, it arose from the ashes of
past projects and has demanded definition over the past six months. It is an auditory grappling with
life beyond college, beyond walls, beyond home-base. It is placeless and yet the product of many
places, among them: the wilds of northern Massachusetts; Ohio s stark fields; Brooklyn on a warm,
lonesome night; and Plunkett's ancestral homelands of Ireland and India. A solo venture for now, Half
Waif writes music influenced by equal parts classical theory and contemporary practice. There is a mood
both ancient and relevant that issues from the dark layers of synthesizers, piano, vocals, and percussion.
It sounds like bits and pieces of things you may have heard before; half of this and half of that, and half
of something else too.
