Basically this is turning into a place where I just talk about how much I like a handful of bands/people who play music. One of them is Dan Deacon.

He is just that fantastic.

The new Deacon album, Bromst, comes out March 24. Pitchfork.TV has some great footage of Deacon in the studio and Deacon playing some of the new songs for the first time in December with his ensemble band.

Taking his unique live shows and adapting them to include a band seems like it wouldn’t work at first but with a bit of fine tuning and some practice I think he’ll be able to come up with something delightful. At least I hope he does by May 12 so that when he comes to Higher Ground we all can get crazy.
