On today's episode I talk to musician, producer, composer and
founding member of Deerhoof, Greg Saunier. After graduating from
the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in 1991, Greg formed the band
Nitre Pit, which a few years later became Deerhoof, and in the last
25 years, the band has released 15 albums on labels like Kill Rock
Stars and Joyful Noise. Outside of Deerhoof, Greg has played with
many bands, including Nervous Cop with Zach Hill and Joanna Newsom,
and Rolling Stone called Greg, Zach and Lightning Bolt's Brian
Chippendale "a generation of trailblazing 21st-century avant-rock
percussionists". Deerhoof's latest album Future Teenage Cave
Artists was just released at the end of May.
