Dan Deacon is from Brooklyn, New York. So far so (obviously) cool. He’s also balding, bespectacled and a bit of a music geek. Very cool indeed in other words. Deacon releases his magnificent new album, Bromst, on Monday and it’s a gigantic melting pot of glitch-techno, aboriginal funk, Iranian trip-hop, Cornish minimal bass and Finnish folk. Or something. A lot of it sounds like machines imploding and if you listen to it on the tube your guaranteed to get a seat.
One track, ‘Woof Woof’, hurts to listen to at points, but then the noise falls away and you feel much better for it.
