Stream Dan Deacon's 'Bromst' right now at NPR!


Dan Deacon's upcoming album, Bromst, will be released March 24, but you can hear the entire thing over at NPR's 'First Listen.' Unlike his previous effort, Spiderman of the Rings, Deacon has combined his formerly all-electronic palette with a mixture of acoustic instruments and machines for a warm, complex sound that's constantly on the move. Deacon has apparently been working on Bromst for three years now, and it's certainly paid off in a big way. I haven't made it all the way through yet, but everything I've heard so far has been nothing short of amazing!

Deacon also has a fairly extensive tour planned in April and May which will include a 15-member backing band playing everything from saxophone to mallets. I imagine this will be a show you won't want to miss.
