Dan Deacon - 'America' Dan Deacon Tickets

Proving that being cool can be pretty awesome

Dan Deacon - 'America'

Album Info

  • Release Date: August 27, 2012
  • Label: Domino
8 / 10 For years Deacon channelled the wonderstruck spirit of happy-hardcore techno through a deceptively humane brand of krautrock. The mastermind behind Baltimore’s Wham City scene – hipsterism’s most uncynical, pioneering incarnation – he’s been unjustly accused of posturing superficiality. But with his fourth album the innovator sets the record straight. America is a profound statement; splicing Fuck Buttons with Sigur Rós in a state-of-the-union address balanced between hope, despair and an accomplished collision of strings, brass, soaring choirs and beats. Deacon proves once and for all that there’s nothing wrong with being cool, as long as you’re awesome.
