Breakup Song is the eleventh studio album by the band Deerhoof. It was released on September 4, 2012 on Polyvinyl Records. A music video for the album's title track was released on June 3, 2013. It was directed by Pieter Dirkx. All tracks written by Ed Rodriguez, Greg Saunier, John Dieterich, and Satomi Matsuzaki, except where noted.
Over the course of their ten previous albums, Deerhoof wrote more songs about milkmen and dogs than falling in, or out, of love, but Breakup Song evens the score a little bit. In true Deerhoof fashion, though, this album is less about moping - the title track even has "hell yeah" in the chorus - and more about relationships, and songs, falling apart into exciting new forms. The band takes the album's name quite literally on a musical level; nearly every track is rife with jagged textures and jarring contrasts.
But Breakup Song is a nice swing in the other direction. It's a quick, pithy album, with 11 songs lasting just 30 minutes. There are patches of tedium, but the best moments are both surprising and engaging. Many of those moments come in an opening four-song head-rush. There's a lot of nervy sound going on in these tunes, with chords, rhythms, and electronic blips and whirrs darting around the stereo space. When Deerhoof dip down from those peaks, it's usually due to lulls in energy. Songs that attempt longer grooves sometimes settle into them rather than pushing or pulling at them. Still, the music is rarely formulaic.

From punk, to post rock, to heavy metal, to EDM, Deerhoof has sampled them all, and with the release of their latest album, Breakup Song (09/04/12), it doesn’t appear as though the group plans to stop experimenting with various genres of popular music any time soon. Breakup Song starts off with the jarring title track during which massively distorted electronic sounds warble through the speakers while Satomi Matsuzaki’s bright, airy vocals reverberate over the top of the melodic embellishments, setting the tone for yet another beautifully bizarre album.
So when Deerhoof have a new album out called Breakup Song, it’s entirely safe to assume that it isn’t going to end at a bunch of brokenhearted ballads. The Deerhoof take on the end of a relationship seems to be reveling in the ability to go out, maybe hit a few clubs and dance like no one knows you. While the album opens with the breakup, Matsuzaki’s not too distraught: When you say it’s all over/ Hell yeah/ Hell yeah/ Anyway. Behind them, Breakup Song’s instrumentation puts significant distance from the majority of the Deerhoof catalog.
