La Isla Bonita is the twelfth studio album by American rock band Deerhoof. Produced by former music journalist and Mr. Dream drummer Nick Sylvester, it was released on November 4, 2014 through Polyvinyl Record C. .The track "Exit Only" was released as the first single off the album on August 20, 2014. The band embarked on a tour in support of the album in November 2014.

Deerhoof celebrates 20 years as a band this year, a feat that astounds founding member Greg Saunier. Not because time has flown by for the uber-influential cult band, but mostly because Deerhoof was never intended to last more than two weeks when it was formed, much less two decades. With their 13th album coming out Nov. 4, Saunier recounts to Billboard the band's tenuous formation and the shadow of instability (but fertile creativity) that's hung over the group on every album and every tour since then. The new album is titled La Isla Bonita. That's a Madonna reference, right? Yeah!

Deerhoof's twelfth album, 2014's La Isla Bonita was self-recorded live in guitarist Ed Rodriguez's basement during a "weeklong sleepover arguing over whether to try and sound like Joan Jett or Janet Jackson". The recordings were meant as demos to be rerecorded with former music journalist and Mr. Dream drummer Nick Sylvester, but the band liked the raw DIY versions so much, they just kept them and recorded the vocals with Sylvester. The lyrics were heavily influenced by 24/7, a book by Columbia professor Jonathan Crary. The album art was by Sara Cwynar

On La Isla Bonita, Deerhoof’s 12th album, the band doesn’t seem to be reaching out to new listeners so much as assuring longtime fans that they still know how to thrown down and get weird. La Isla Bonita, their twelfth studio album and third on Polyvinyl, was recorded in guitarist Ed Rodriguez’s basement. Interestingly enough, the album was co-produced by music owner Nick Sylvester, marking only the second time that Deerhoof has enlisted a producer (the job is typically filled by Deerhoof drummer Greg Saunier, who is a much sought-after producer himself).
