“My Lovely Cat”
(Joyful Noise Recordings)


Deerhoof have released “My Lovely Cat,” their new single dedicated to world famous cat Lil Bub, recorded and mixed by Lil Bub’s dude Mike Bridavsky at Winnipeg, Canada’s No Fun Club, and mastered by Bridavsky at Russian Recording. With lyrics written and sung in Japanese by Satomi Matsuzaki (who also illustrated its adorable artwork), “My Lovely Cat” is as bittersweet as it is groovy, and marks Deerhoof’s first new music since their acclaimed 2021 LP, Actually, You Can (Joyful Noise Recordings).  

“If you were going to compose a song about a cute cat from the internet, then get it recorded and mixed and mastered by an outside producer known not only for their recording and mixing and mastering, but for their cute cat from the internet, well, you would be shrewd indeed. But this of course we did not do, because we didn’t know about Mike Bridavsky or Lil Bub when we wrote the song! Well, we think about him now: a true collaborator and artist and friend” – Deerhoof

Deerhoof are playing select headline west coast dates this fall, including a show at LA’s Regent Theater on October 23rd (a full itinerary is listed below). Stay tuned for more new music from Deerhoof in 2023. In the meantime, enjoy the English translation of “My Lovely Cat:”
