by Dan Deacon
Released: Aug 2012
Label: Domino Recording Co.
As expansive as its title, Dan Deacon's debut album for Domino grapples with big themes. Inspired by cross-country rail trips and, he says, "by my frustration, fear and anger towards the country and world I live in and am a part of," it's a buoyant, ebullient record, bursting at the seams with sing-along choruses and mountain-sized melodies. Deacon's work alongside So Percussion colors songs like "Prettyboy" and "USA III: Rail," lush with mallet instruments and reminiscent of Steve Reich, while buzzing synthesizers and overdriven drums expand on Deacon's electrifying sound.
