Dan Deacon’s Bromst

March 23, 2009


Dan Deacon returns with Bromst (due out tomorrow, 3/24) the follow-up to 2007’s Spiderman of the Rings.  Bromst is a layered collage of sounds including drums, bells, bleeps, vocal effects, tribal chants and computer fuzz. The songs range from tight, upbeat percussion numbers to ethereal space odysseys, while the best are somewhere in between.  The best example is “Snookered” (below), which builds from zen bells, drums and chants to a complex composition of vocal loops and deep synth retaining the original calming elements throughout.  Bromst is an impressive accomplishment and  makes me think we’ll be looking for Deacon to lead the way in the electro-realm for quite a while.  

The album artwork showing a hypnotic dance tent lit-up in the middle of a forest couldn’t be more fitting.

US Tour begins April 3rd.  All dates after the jump.
