Old People Enjoy Dan Deacon's Ding Dongs

Bill, Anne, and Joe are at it again. The Fishtown trio of elderly critics are still gathering at 5 AM at Sulimay's, and are still equipped with headphones bumping the latest tunes that you'd expect them to hate.

This time they're knocking Dan Deacon, and I thought I'd share their analysis in light of my recent contest for free tickets that is up and running. The group tear into "Snookered", a track off Bromst that gives you a chance to sit back and take it all in.

Anne think's "the record's stuck" and asks someone to "check that needle", but likes all the "little ding dongs" in the beginning. Joe thinks the track "suffered from an overlong intro" and "thinks it could be improved with judicious editing". Bill suggests not to "try to understand art". Please pass the cream of wheat.
