Deer Leap - Here. Home vinyl LP
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
We are very excited to announce that we will be releasing Deer Leap?s ?Here. Home? as a vinyl LP early next year. This will be a split release with a new label from Boston called Small Time Records.
Small Time Records:
?Here. Home? is the debut LP for the New Hampshire post-rock tinged atmospheric emo trio. They won the internet?s heart with their amazing effort on a split LP with The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die in 2011. The bands draws influence from artists like The Appleseed Cast, Jimmy Eat World, and Mogwai. You can stream / download ?Here. Home? on their bandcamp: http://deerleap.bandcamp.com/
?? with its medley of superb indie and post-rock tendencies, Here. Home. proves Deer Leap can stand on their own, are on the top of their game, and are a band worth noticing that will surely surprise a lot of people in the near future.? Sputnik Music (4 out of 5)?It?s hard to tell if Here. Home. is an album of tension being fully released or problems merely going unsolved, but either way, listening [to] the journey yields rewards. Deer Leap [is] one of the better, more gripping acts in a crowded field, and Here. Home. will hopefully gain them as much notice as they deserve.? Punk News (4 out of 5)?If you?re looking for an intense, emotional album to put on, sit back and contemplate to, this is for you. I can?t think of a band that better delivers the perfect mix of crushing instrumental work and clean, consistently powerful vocals.? Serious Tones (4 out of 5)- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -And because we just can?t wait to put out some Deer Leap jams, we decided to press some copies of their original demo from 2010 on cassettes. This release features a bonus demo version of the song ?Coffee & Keys? from their 2011 split LP with The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die.These are now available from our webstore:
In early 2012, we believed that Deer Leap had an expiration date as I had planned to move come the summer. With this in mind, we rushed into Format Audio with our friend Ryan Stack to record all the songs that we had written after recording the Split. The final product of this session is a collection of songs we are calling Here. Home. I did not end up moving and we finished mixing and mastering the songs at the beginning of the summer but held off on releasing them. While the band is currently in a state of flux because of our jobs and such, we have decided to put out the album as we are extremely anxious for everyone to finally have the songs. So please, listen, enjoy, and share.

I like the way that you guys kicked off your Demo record with that simple subtle track. By seemingly doing so little you’ve accomplished so much. Was that song more of a slow jam, or was there an even that inspired a song like that?
Originally there was a song we used to play for the Intro at our shows. We planned for that song to be on the demo but never got around to recording it. I did however, record bits of it on my loop station and wound up with that short intro that is on the demo. It had a lot of mood and it fit really well as the opener to the demo. We wanted something soft and ambient to lull your senses before the beginning of Hazle came booming in.
When you guys described your musical genre on Topshelfrecords.com, you wrote, “Three friends that make rock music”. This being the case, who are some of your influences?
That description was kind of our take on the long winded bios you see a lot of bands write about themselves. We just wanted it to be short and to the point. But influence wise we’ve all got a lot that we share and some that are unique to each of us. We’re all very influenced by American Football, Appleseed Cast, and Jimmy Eat World. So we bring a lot of that to the table when we practice together. I’m also a big fan of Mogwai, Radiohead, and Circa Survive, so I think a lot of how I write guitar-wise can be traced back to all those bands in some way or another.
This is one thing I just can’t go without asking, where is Sha- Booms? Did it have enough of an influence on you that you guys had to have a song about it, or is it simply a song name?
A lot of our song names come from books, television, and movies. That name comes from the show Eastbound and Down. We all love it and really wanted to name a song after it. We have difficulty coming up with names and referencing pop culture is always a fun thing for me. Like when I notice a band references something I like I get a little excited, which is kind of lame but fun. As we continue writing, however, I think we’re going to steer clear from the references.
I love when bands cross genres in albums. Sigur Ros did this when he released his album Takk. You guys have such a mix in song variety whether it’s writing an instrumental piece or one that’s slow and subtle or its something loud and abrasive. Do you find it difficult to write a cohesive album with so many possibilities available to you?
Absolutely. Our writing process is all over the place. We never really sit down and think about writing a song. Usually our songs evolve from improvised jams we have at practices. So as for writing a cohesive batch of songs, we haven’t really aimed to yet, we just write songs as they come to us and hope it all fits within whatever our sound has become. But I think since writing the songs for our split with The World Is… we understand what “our sound” is, which is something that we didn’t know when we started the band. That’s why the songs on the Demo are all over the place, we were just writing songs, which I think is the case when any band starts out. We never really sat down and said “This is what we should sound like”, it just happens naturally over time as you play and write together.
Lastly, are you guys working on any more albums? Are you focusing more so on touring now-a-days?
We have a handful of new songs that we are hoping to record asap. We’d really like to record and then focus on some touring, we are just all extremely busy all the time and it makes focusing on the band very difficult. But we do have some new songs that we are extremely excited to play and record.
All of our recordings (the demo and our split with The World Is…) are on our bandcamp. You can also get the split at http://tsr-store.com.

Most excited for this show. I love every band on it
THIS FRIDAY. If you live within, I dunno, 100 miles and aren?t there I just don?t know anymore, man!
Due to some personal health issues, we are actually not going to be able to make it to most of the dates on our tour. Tom found out he had a really serious condition a few weeks ago. Although everything was looking significantly better earlier last week, he?s back in the hospital and?
