Default Dan Deacon


Known for his interactive live performances and emotional, danceable tracks throughout eight studio albums, this noise pop curator, electronic, avant-garde loop fiend, oscillation manipulator extraordinaire: Dan Deacon is a name you should know.

Here's a link to his Tiny Desk performance, in which he gets a room full of white NPR nerds to dance (and made me cry in doing so): Dan Deacon: Tiny Desk Concert : NPR


And here is my favorite track. Taken from his 2009 album, Bromst:


His latest work, Glass Riffer, dropped in February, and once again Dan constructs these pieces that are at once heavy and lighthearted, fun and melancholic, complex and accessible. Check him out, I believe he truly has something to offer everyone.

Pretty cool how he hooked up some triggered actuators to that upright, and he really makes good use of quite a few of those pedals and gadgets. Good stuff, thanks.

ive always felt like i should dig Deacon more than i do. I like Bromst enough, but don't love it. been meaning to hear his newest one tho so maybe thatll strike a bigger key with me.

that tiny desk concert is rad as hell tho definitely helping me want to check him out more. i would wreck that d floor battle fwiw

That Tiny Desk show was amazing. How exactly did it make you cry though?
