I’ve been dipping my feet into Bromst, Dan Deacon’s latest auditory assault, for the past few days. While this record isn’t likely to convert those who felt accosted (in a bad way) by 2007’s collosal Spiderman of the Rings, Deacon’s new album furthers his quest in manipulating that ever-so-thin line between “unlistenable” and “goddamn-fucking-killer-genius.”
It’s even gotten the attention of NPR, who is currently providing a free stream of the album, which will see an official release date through Carpark on March 24th. (Standouts include “Build Voice,” “Woof Woof” and “Snookered”).
Now for something even more exciting: on April 18th, Deacon will be ringing in the return of the Modern Art Museum of Forth Worth’s “Modern ’til Midnight” with a performance in the outdoor sculpture garden. Also: he’s performing with 14-piece ensemble. Also: Teeth Mountain and Future Islands are opening, and the cover is $15. You’ll hate yourself if you miss this.
