Needless to say, we wont be hitting up Dan Deacon for Web design anytime soon. Just check out the musicians ode-to-1991 homepage. Were talking HTML your kid sister would scoff at. (Think were exaggerating? Try www.dandeacon.com.)
However, Deacon makes up for his general lack of Internet know-how (and who really cares about that stuff, anyhow?) with brilliant electronic-music compositions aided by effects pedals, wave function generators, and massive nerd-gasms. His new album, Bromst, takes the Baltimore-based artists wall of sound to new heights with the help of a seven-man ensemble adding trumpet, keyboard, alto saxophone, mallets, and more to the musicians already disfigured electronic/psychedelic repertoire. We also dig Deacons tendency to ditch the stage and perform among the concertgoers.
