Dan Deacon, 'Spiderman of the Rings' (Carpark)

6
Spiderman of the Rings
Critical Mass
Label: Carpark

by Marc Hogan

Dan Deacon may look like Bill Nye the Science Guy, but he's more like Dr. Demento. This one-man A/V club party makes low-budget electronic pop that's as bizarre as it is uproarious. Deacon's first proper album (after several limited releases) tricks out Devo-esque new wave with eight-bit beats, cartoon sound effects, and munchkin-pitched Ludacris quotes. While a classically trained background shows through the blissed-out drones of "The Crystal Cat," Deacon's weird-science experiments more often test your funny bone -- and shake your moneymaker.
