Dan Deacon explosion

Here’s my official rave for the mad genius of this Baltimore electronic musician. His live shows and previous album (described by Pitchfork “like an army of Woody Woodpeckers took speed and decided to form a band inspired by the taste of Skittles”) has been a huge smash with folk all over the country. With a new album looming that is supposed to be more organic and serious than his previous one, I thought it was high time to get him on this page.  The first video is him performing live on the morning news (proof that Elvis may possess him at times), and the second is a sampling of his collaboration on the Ultimate Reality DVD with visuals by JJ Roche (available on Netflix). It’s a 40 minute Schwarzenegger-themed, culture-warping music art video that is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen, and something I’ll be sharing with others as much as possible.
