STAFF PICK: Dan Deacon, Spiderman of the Rings (Carpark): "An amazingly fun and spastic mash of keyboards and effects-laden vocals with lyrics about castles and bears, for those times you want to flail about in public to jittery electronic music performed by a guy in a Looney Tunes sweater." (Kyle Olson)
