Deerhoof’s name is well chosen — something cute with the power to kick you in the head. On The Runners Four, their eighth album, the quartet again offers complex song structures, but in the context of a quieter music that, with bassist Satumi Matsuzaki doing most of the lead vocals, suggests a Velvet Underground album with Maureen Tucker (or Blossom Dearie) singing. The sound could be called avant-pop, but the emphasis is often on the first half of that formulation. Additionally, Matsuzaki is a charming love/hate presence cooing lyrics like “Melody. Griffins sing a song of liberty/Ga ga. Ga ga,” but she’s hardly the only reason Deerhoof might not be the next favorite of the O.C.’s music supervisors. There’s also the abstract, wordless “News From a Bird,” for instance, and the noise blast of “Rrrrrrrright” (the “ga ga” song). For adventurous and sympathetic ears, though, this is a very rewarding listen.
