Gabe’s Picks – January 5

The name Dan Deacon brings to mind dance circles, human tunnels and Crystal Cats, but recently the Baltimore-born electronic musician has taken a more human approach to his music. Deacon’s 2007 album Spiderman of the Rings was created almost exclusively without instruments, and while it translated well to Deacon’s live show, the album lacked the human emotion of a great album.

For the past few years, Deacon has been traveling the United States and the world performing his hectic live set/dance party (you know how much the Bus loves dance parties), and now he is traveling with a 14-piece band performing his new album Bromst. In Deacon’s own words “Spiderman of the Rings was very carefree and youthful — sort of partying for the sake of partying. This record is less about a party and more about a celebration.” The opening track of Bromst “Build Voice” is a perfect example of Deacon’s transformation to more expressive, meaningful music.
