DAN DEACON is back in town and we couldn't be happier to have him for this round of Red Bull Sound Select Chicago! This Baltimore based singer/songwriter and electroacoustic composer is always a damn treat to have on our stage. DEACON adventured into untouched territory with his latest self-produced LP Gliss Riffer, released last February. Following up on the release of his large ensemble-based recordings - 2009's Bromst and 2012's America - DEACON decided to return to a simpler way of writing and recording, similar to that of 2007's breakthru Spiderman of the Rings. What Gliss Riffer shares with Spiderman of the Rings is a direct and ecstatic energy. It trades in exuberant, uncontained fun that is tempered by lyrics that yearn and are set in defiance of life's nagging anxiety.
MARIJUANA DEATHSQUADS is the ever-evolving, experimental project lead by Ryan Olson, (producer/writer of POLIÇA and GAYNGS), and Isaac Gale. With multiple drummers, a slew of electronic instruments, and highly effected vocals, their live shows are a violent onslaught of improvised yet tightly woven, jagged, intricate experimental sound.
AIR CREDITS is a collaboration between hip-hop artists SHOWYOUSUCK and mash-up crew THE HOOD INTERNET. AIR CREDITS is music from the not too distant future, when the planet's water supply has all but ceased, the landscape turning to desert, the desert turning to wasteland. Radio stations worldwide have been transformed into climate controlled compounds, guarded heavily by their surrounding communities not only to maintain communique with the declining population, but to preserve music new and old— lest it expire with the planet.
