Really impressed with the new Dan Deacon album.

It does however seem to me that the central tension is not, as has been argued elsewhere, between community and individualism/solipsism, but between primitivism and futurism - progressivist technological vigour pushed to such an extreme that it comes full circle, and ends up as a sort of wonderfully innocent kaleidoscopic primordialism.

Seems like a perfect encapsulation of the spirit of the age - multivocal hyperactive excess combined with a hankering for a humane, back-to-basics simplicity.
