Deerhoof offers a preview of its new album through the “Jingletron”

Stylistically shifting indie-rock group Deerhoof has announced that its latest album, Breakup Song, will be released in the U.S. on September 4. Never content to simply announce a new album, however, the band is letting listeners preview its upcoming release through a widget on the band's website known as the “Jingletron.” After inserting an animated token, the Jingletron plays snippets of the new songs while an animated approximation of guitarist Ed Rodriguez dances along.

The band has promised that the new album will be one of its “poppiest” to date, calling it a “sensational record of Cuban-flavored party-noise-energy music." It's also confirmed a tour that begins September 5 with a show in Washington, D.C., and ends in December with a performance at All Tomorrow’s Parties.
