Electronic musician/composer Dan Deacon is a
happy soul. I say this without any real certainty
as I have never met him. His album 'Bromst', however,
provides strong evidence to confirm this hypothesis.

This is the cheerful face of electronica.
Big, bold, bubbling compositions, brimming
over with energy and bursting at the seams
with scintillating musical ideas.

It's a bit like a beam of white light hitting
the heart of a diamond and bouncing out in a
thousand directions simultaneously.

Mr Deacon is in touch with his inner-hippie
and that is no bad thing when it generates
music as curiously enthralling as this.

There's something strangely wonderful going on
in the forest clearing on 'Paddling Ghost'.
Listen carefully and you will hear a family of
chipmunks singing and dancing along deep in the mix.

Many of the compositions have an anthemic quality.
Multi-tracked vocal incantations layered over
buzzing and warbling synths and blistering percussion.

The ecstatic near-madness of 'Snookered' is like a runaway
express train which is in danger of flying off the rails.

The fairy bells and military drumming at the beginning
of 'Of The Mountains' evolves slowly together with the
ambiguous, near-tribal, chanting into one of the project's
most satisfying compositions. A hypnotic riot!

'Woof Woof' is a big, barmy bundle of fun.
All manner of woodland creatures and ethereal
beings would appear to have united in song
with a common purpose. To make us smile!

Final track 'Get Older' sounds like something
akin to an all-night hootenanny in hell and
everyone is clearly having the devil of a good time!

Mad as a box of frogs in the nicest possible way!!

Highly Recommended.

Want to restore your faith in dance/electronica? Start here. Sounds like Brian Eno doing happy hardcore,which turns out to be a good thing.
