55. Deerhoof - ‘Breakup Song’ + Cuba Libre

Deerhoof - ‘Breakup Song’ + Cuba Libre

Ingredients: 4 ounces Coca-Cola, 2 ounces light rum, juice of 1/2 a lime, lime wedge for garnish.

Mixing Instructions: Squeeze the juice of half a lime into a collins glass, add ice, pour the remaining ingredients into the glass, stir well.  Add lime wedge for garnish.

Notes:  Remember that scene in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory when the little gunslinger Mike Teavee gets zapped into a million tiny bits floating through the  ether, crackling, popping and snapping his way into a smaller version of himself?  That’s what Deerhoof’s music can sometimes sound like…lots of sonic bits and bytes jumbled together into a hurricane of sound.  Somehow, though, those bits magically came together for 30-min of enjoyable (even dance-able in many parts) music.  This isn’t something you put on as background music while the in-laws are in town, but if you’re in the mood for something different…like Willy Wonka different, then throw this hummer down on the turntable and mix yourself a Cuba Libre.
