"Deerhoof rock with the fury of 1000 suns, cacophonous and dangerous, but they're also the masters of 'quiet-loud', the idea that moments, though soft in decibels, can be incredibly and sonically deafening, that pure beauty has a loudness all its own.

 Deerhoof : Milk Man - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Deerhoof follows Apple O', an album that won the group ever-growing critical and popular acclaim, with Milk Man, an album even more conceptual and song-oriented than its predecessor.
The vision and the visuals surrounding the album are a perfect fit with Deerhoof's music, and, perhaps befitting Milk Man's status as a concept album, this time around the band incorporates more prog rock-like keyboards and other electronics into its sound.
Since the album is relatively restrained, it's not quite as buoyant as Apple O' or Reveille, and it lacks a little bit of the delirious overload of Deerhoof's earliest work, but that doesn't mean that it's less distinctive.

Deerhoof's new, seventh CD, The Runners Four (Kill Rock Stars), possesses a less prominent foodie leitmotif than 2003's Apple O' and 2004's Milk Man – but no one can deny that the sprawling double album-length release offers any less food for thought than their previous discs.

 The History of Rock Music. Deerhoof: biography, discography, reviews, links
San Francisco-based Deerhoof, formed in 1994 by guitarist Rob Fisk and drummer Greg Saunier and inaugurated with the single Return of the Woods (1995), is an avant-pop concept that tries to balance cacophony and melody, abstraction and organization.
The EP Deerhoof (Menlo Park, 1996) and the album The Man The King The Girl (Kill Rock Stars, 1997) added vocalist Satomi Matsuzaki and sounded like Captain Beefheart in his most deranged moments, intent in off-kilter blues and dissonant jamming.
That aesthetics was continued on the brief concept album Apple O' (Kill Rock Stars, 2003), which redefined their mission as a deconstruction of the rock song in a vein related to Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 (Sealed With A Kiss, DUmmy Discards a Heart, Apple Bomb) but often with a new melodic emphasis (L'Amour Stories).
