Dan Deacon: Hear Two New Tracks

 

Posted at 2:40pm, 7/20/2012

"True Thrush" is the second track to be made available from Dan Deacon's forthcoming album America out August 28th on Domino Records. While "Lots" is a good introduction to the album's aesthetic territory, "True Thrush" is Deacon outdoing himself to craft truly transcendent pop. This is the song we've been waiting for him to make.

Listen to "True Thrush" and "Lots" below:

We highly recommend checking out the music video, as well. Directed by Ben O'Brien and Dan Deacon, the video is based on a drawing game popular in the Baltimore art collective Wham City, which is in turn based on the game "telephone." For the video, Dan and Ben filmed a simple 13-second scene. That scene was then shown to the next team. After seeing the video that team had 1 hour to recreate it -- characters, props, set, costumes, and actions -- as close to exactly as possible from only their memory.
