Dan Deacon

The Bridging the Atlanic crew really likes Dan Deacon's album Spiderman of the Rings, and we think you will too. Tracks range from frenetic schizo electro bashers ('The Crystal Cat') to twinkly ambient noise-scapes ('Big Milk) to atmospheric synth-pop ('Pink Batman'). Plus it has neat cover art and the songs all have cool names. Deacon is now on tour and Ottawa kids can catch him at Zaphods on July 10th.

The video for 'The Crystal Cat', released a couple of weeks ago, is typical Deacon fare:
