Yesterday we took a look at Dan’s shady forest/bright tent album art for his forthcoming Bromst, compared in turns by you guys to past covers from Gossip Girl-fave Department Of Eagles and cannabis-fave Phish. You guys have a lot of reference points. And you won’t need any of them on this first listen from the album: “Get Older” is a Dan Deacon song through and through, with some acoustic instrumentation (drums, marimba) rounding out the usual electro whiplash.

Bromst is out 3/24 via Carpark. If that’s too long to wait for new Deacon, Dan’s got a split 12″ with Adventure, out 1/27, also via Carpark. It features “Get Older” as well as non-Bromst tune “Cave Birth.”

    My eardrums are bleeding. Thanks, dork.

  5. At 1:24 I couldn’t take any more… I can only imagine how exhausting 6:29 of this would be.

    That’s 389 seconds.

    A. This is Dan Deacon, its supposed to make your ears bleed.
    B. I think I heard this live, but my ears are still bleeding.
    C. I love it.
    and, Dude, seriously, if you can’t take this, go suck on some Bon Iver like everyone else. Leave the quality tunes to those brave enough to continue listening.

    i dig this track a lot. but i have also heard other tracks off the album as well that are even better. the “new direction” seems to be more of a logical “evolution” or “maturation” than a drastic shift. just wait to hear the album!

    also, a version of cave birth was on the baltimore round robin compilation which you can download here: http://www.baltimoreroundrobin.com/ not sure whether it will be the exact same version on the split, but its certainly an odd track.

    can we just go back to talking about animal collective? this is kinda annoying. although it isn’t AS annoying as his older stuff.

    I guess smashing crayolas and nintendo together is Deacon’s conception of being “dark.”
