Why Not Both is an exploration of how our multiple passions shape our identity, hosted by musician and therapist Pam Shaffer and produced by writer and photographer Laura Studarus. For our third season, we partnered up with Under The Radar to explore the lives of musicians, writers, actors, and creatives. This week, we got to ride a rollercoaster of emotions with Greg Saunier of Deerhoof. From learning that his music has inspired both romances and break ups to navigating life in an ever transforming band, Greg spent the last few decades collaborating with everyone from his bandmates to musicians around the world to Justin Theroux on his journey to create inspiringly delightful soundscapes. As we approach a critical election in the United States, Greg urges us all to lean into the power of transformation and social engagement as we are all navigating the wondrously strange world of 2020.

On today's episode I talk to musician, producer, composer and founding member of Deerhoof, Greg Saunier. After graduating from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in 1991, Greg formed the band Nitre Pit, which a few years later became Deerhoof, and in the last 25 years, the band has released 15 albums on labels like Kill Rock Stars and Joyful Noise. Outside of Deerhoof, Greg has played with many bands, including Nervous Cop with Zach Hill and Joanna Newsom, and Rolling Stone called Greg, Zach and Lightning Bolt's Brian Chippendale "a generation of trailblazing 21st-century avant-rock percussionists". Deerhoof's latest album Future Teenage Cave Artists was just released at the end of May. This is the website for Beginnings, subscribe on Apple Podcasts, follow me on Twitter.
Greg Saunier is best know as the drummer of Deerhoof. He is also a composer, arranger, mixing engineer and producer. In this episode Greg talks self discovery via quarantine with his partner of a few months. We also discuss how the current BLM and social injustice movement's persistence is proving to wear down antiquated, outdated social and government systems. Greg tells us how The Shins inspired a song on the record Runners Four and turns us on to a new project called Stargaze that covers Fugazi songs with solo instruments.

Deerhoof has become one of the country’s most unusual and prolific rock bands, and drummer Greg Saunier has been in the driver’s seat the whole time. His ecstatic attack—and his minimal kit—have helped define and distinguish the group, which formed in San Francisco in the mid-1990s. In this episode, he talks about an AM-gold gem, a lost hip-hop classic, and music as medicine.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
