Dan Deacon

A formal introduction to Dan Deacon is unnecessary, who knows how he'll take it. <-----That was in cahoots with this guy, huh? ? ?

His album dropped this week and so far is getting great reviews.

He's seen as heading a new genre centered in Baltimore known as 'future shock'. Loosely defined, future shock uses laptops, gadgets, synthesizers, electro acoustics and voice modulators. Oh yea, and goofy humor. This clip is a wonderful introduction to the man.

This future shock doesn't sound too far out there, but hey, new genres are always welcome. His album is wonderful the entire way through. The face doesn't match the dare I say, beauty of some songs on the album (i.e. Pink Batman)

Check it out for yourself

If you're still holding on, this one's a BLAST!

This is fantastic! I thought of Subtle meets Wierd Al. His face at the beginning of the youtube vid is great.
