Some facts about Dan Deacon and Bromst:
-On the inside of the Bromst digipak (the best kind of cd), there is a little cardboard sheet that says 'Bromstent' with instructions on how to build it (folds and flaps etc.)
-I've never been to a Dan Deacon concert, but I have a feeling they're filled with seisure-endusing strobe lights, lots of jumping up and down, moshing, sweating, and confetti. Oh, and Dan Deacon. I actually heard that when performing live, Dan is at level with the hectic audience, and he jogs around with his little electro-pop synth machine, slappin' 5's. Hence, I would love to go to one of these joyous concerts.
-Has a tour bus that runs on vegetable oil.
-Was classmates with Regina Spektor.
-According to Wikipedia, he used something called a player piano to record. The piano had to be re-wired so that each line was tracked individually, so the piano could keep up with what Deacon composed, which is said to be impossibly fast to play on one piano.
-Has actually had a spinal injury due to jumping up and down so much at one of those those spectacular concerts I mentioned earlier.
-Because of its chanty-synth vocals, quickly-paced melodies, heavy drumbeats, and overall dissonant-but-satisfying electronic feel that makes you want to get up and jump through the ceiling, Bromst is one of the best albums of 2009.
