Melvins’ Dale Crover & Deerhoof Team Up For Split 7″


Melvins drummer Dale Crover and Deerhoof will have a split 7″ release out soon through Joyful Noise Recordings. It’s part of a ’cause and effect’ series of splits that pairs the music of an artist with the music of someone influenced by it. Crover‘s work with the Melvins in this case would be the influential artist, as Deerhoof‘s Greg Saunier commented:

“When Deerhoof started in 1994 there was only one local band I would go to see literally every time they played and that was the Melvins. It took me a few tries to find a strong drum style of my own coz at that time I was simply a DC imitator. ‘I Hear An Echo‘ is at first glance a song featuring jazz chords but upon closer inspection, it’s a heavy song in the style of the Melvins.”

Both artists will be contributing previously unreleased tracks with Crover sharing “Tiny Dirt“—a b-side from his recent album, “The Fickle Finger Of Fate“. Deerhoof will serve up their “Reveille” b-side, “I Hear An Echo“. You can the split at
