Freakin Dan Deacon

September 14, 2009

Guilty pleasure confessional time. A bit of an ironic counterpoint to my previous post on the human race being “entertained to extinction”. Although I am very clearly not in the target demographic of Dan Deacon (see above picture for evidence), I find his hyperactive brand of sugary synth pop electro both addictive and mesmerizing. Yes, it is unabashed empty party music for degenerate teenage post-hipsters. But it’s got a compelling voice and energy, which is more than I can say for most of the post-everything watered down sounds of today posing as music. Here’s a guy just going for it, full on, all the way. The way they used to. Look at his live show footage. He’s a Jesus Christ Superstar. Messianic.
