Dan Deacon

Dan Deacon"Dan Deacon is a Baltimore, Maryland-based absurdist electronic music composer/performer. He attended Purchase College in Purchase, New York where he completed his graduate studies in electro-acoustic and computer music composition. He studied under composer/conductor Joel Thome. Currently, he lives at Wham City in Baltimore, Maryland.

Dan Deacon's compositional style is best classified in the Future Shock genre along with Video Hippos, Santa Dads, Blood Baby, Ecstatic Sunshine, Ponytail, and other bands in the growing Baltimore music scene." [Wikipedia]

Dan DeaconDan has released a bunch of albums over the past three years. One of them, Twacky Cats, is available for free above. It's licensed under creative commons.

Compare that with his new full-length album on Carpark records Spiderman of the Rings - out May 8th. He was gifted then, and seems to have perfected his awesomeness now.

Track 2:

DOWNLOAD: Dan Deacon - The Crystal Cat (MP3)

Between his recorded output, and his much-talked-about crazy live shows, Dan is destined for great things - and it looks like it's happening sooner than later with this new album and the unbridled support of Pitchfork (whose festival he's playing in July). Stay true to the streets he may, but no doubt a headlining slot at Bowery Ballroom can't be far off (if he so chooses).

Who's paying attention....

i had a dream about someone who was not dan deacon, who didn't look anything like an deacon, was not named dan, but was a deacon.

when i woke up, i felt peaceful.

Dan was AMAZING as the secret guest at the Lightning Bolt Studio B show.

Dan is not a patch onthelategreat Wesley Willis

However, he should continue in spite of seeming contrived in his whackiness

it's so weird to see a photo that i took of dan deacon put up pretty much everywhere that talks about him. especially when i remember taking the photo and uploading it to my computer and thinking "man, that picture would be so good if it was more in focus".

the best part - the cake shop in NYC (where the show was) has a wall of photos taken from shows, and they superimposed that photo onto a polaroid. womp womp womp
