Deerhoof's twelfth studio album, La Isla Bonita, takes them to diverse, chaotic territory. Produced by Nick Sylvester, the album is a multi-textured followup to 2012's Breakup Song. Drummer Greg Saunier spoke about the album in a press release:
No band is an island. Felt like one sometimes, in those budgetless and obscure early days, Satomi and me locked in the basement trying to figure out how our clashing personalities and ideas could turn into a band. If we hadn't had that crazed mid-90s Bay Area punk scene to call home, I doubt we'd still be here to chat about a 20th anniversary. ... We don't set out to create masterpieces. The Deerhoof fan is a thrill-seeker. This is the latest volley in an ongoing conversation we've been honored to hold for 20 years.
