Product Description

Product Description

America is Dan Deacon’s most powerful work to date, the culmination of years spent playing both DIY venues and concert halls across the world. The ecstatic, celebratory sounds found on America are in compelling contrast with the darker thematic undercurrents.

By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 23 Mar. 2013
Format: Audio CD
I seem to have let this one slip by me last Summer but I'm glad to
have now met its acquaintance. Dan Deacon's last venture 'Bromst'
(2009) was a cracker. A single-minded foray into experimental joy.
Mr Deacon's brand of electronica has a truly human side and one
senses that he is a bit of a trickster at heart underneath that
wholesome beard! There is both intelligence and humour at work in
'America'; a tangled but sincere love letter to his homeland.

There are nine pieces in the set, four of which relate to the
album's title ('USA I-IV') but before we get to the heart of the
project there are five other splendid sonic inventions to contend
with. Opening track 'Guilford Avenue Bridge' is a bold, brash and
breathtakingly complex arrangement full of grinding riffs and
mercurial synth lines spinning wildly in the ether above a rip-
roaring percussion foundation. In contrast 'True Thrush' is a
heartwarming piece of chugging quasi-psychedelic pop with all
manner of woodland creates (or so it seems to me) singing and dancing
along to the nursery-rhyme-like chorus. A truly delightful idea.
The the crash and burn and distorted vocals of 'Lots', too, proves
that, despite his left-field leanings, Mr Deacon is a real craftsman
when it come to the business of kicking a good tune into play.

The 'USA' pieces take us into new territory. Aaron Copeland and
Charles Ives might be smiling from the wings at the introduction to
'USA I : Is A Monster' with its panoramic orchestral sweep but Mr Deacon
doesn't keep the high-seriousness going for too long - a sudden switch
a couple of minutes in and he's channeling The Beach Boys! It's a hoot!
