Dan Deacon's Bromst

A new Dan Deacon track surfaced earlier today, and it kind of sounds like a magic xylophone racing down the side of a mountain. "Get Older" will be released on vinyl later this month via Carpark, and it will also be the closing number on Deacon's new album entitled Bromst.

Released in late March, Bromst is a mixture of acoustic instruments, mechanical instruments, samples and electronics, including player piano, marimba, glockenspiel, vibraphone, live drums, winds and brass. A North American tour with an insane 15-person live show is planned from spring 2009, and many visually enticing music videos are in the works.

According to the press release, "Get Older is about realizing that aging, growth and change should be embraced, not feared. You can still trash around and dance until you're soaked in sweat, but it's not a distraction or escape. It's music written to help motivate and get pumped in both joyous and difficult times."
