Bromst by Dan Deacon





MIST029 BROMST by DAN DEACON
Three years in the making, Bromst is intense and epic, yet down to earth and welcoming. Bromst embodies all the energy and excitement of a Dan Deacon live show, but with a richer palette of acoustic and mechanical instruments (player piano, marimba, glockenspiel, vibraphone, live drums, winds and brass), samples and electronics…. all woven together into a rich, dense, noisy dance pop that has become Dan’s signature sound. Comes with a rad foldout replica tent!

“Deacon has achieved with Bromst something akin to what Joanna Newsom did with Ys: the creation of a one-of-a-kind album that demands our esteem”

Spiderman of the Rings by Dan Deacon





MIST009 SPIDERMAN OF THE RINGS by DAN DEACON
Tapping directly into the great lineage of batshit bubblegum pop, Baltimore art kid Dan Deacon’s Spiderman of the Rings connects at various points with Kasenetz and Katz, Sam the Sham, happy hardcore and gabba techno, “Surfin’ Bird”, the twinkly melodies of an infant’s mobile (the unexpectedly gorgeous “Big Milk”), the Ramones, Koji Kondo (composer-in-residence for the Nintendo Entertainment System), Max Martin, and Daft Punk. Deacon is a core member of Baltimore’s Wham City crew– a Baltimore loft/show space and arts collective– and the 12-minute “Wham City” is this album’s centerpiece. In this tribute to his friends and his former home, you can hear hints of all sorts of hypnotic beats, from Neu!’s motorik percussion and Kraftwerk’s synthesizers to Steve Reich’s mallets and Terry Riley’s keyboards. But as a sing-along– or chant-along in this case, one of the catchiest of the year– it also hints at a deep love of old “Sesame Street” records and a full collection of “Muppet Show” DVDs. Even when Deacon goes epic– and pays tribute to the hardcore experimental composers he studied in college– he can’t resist the urge to play up to your inner child.
