Deerhoof Cover LiLiPUT’s “Hitch Hike”

for Rules to Rock By Soundtrack

Rules to Rock By is a new book by author and musician Josh Farrar for young adults about fictional teen band The Bungles who’s founder Annabelle Cabrera is inspired by the very real band Deerhoof (who also make a fictional cameo at the beginning of the book!). This incredible story encourages kids to pursue music, and is accompanied by an equally amazing soundtrack with contributions by talented teen and adult musicians. It includes a cover of Swedish band LiLiPUT’s track “Hitch Hike” by Deerhoof who were happy to participate and support kids in pursuing music. Other tracks off the soundtrack feature the book’s fictional band The Bungles, performing covers and original tracks by real teen band Blame the Patient, described by The New York Times as  “effective miners of late-’80s and early-’90s indie rock with a ferocious lead guitarist, Hunter Lombard, and a kinetic lead singer, Sofie Kapur.”

More details to be announced shortly, but in the meantime enjoy the Deerhoof cover of “Hitch Hike” premiered on Pitchfork and available for free download HERE
