HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Tues June 16 - Dan Deacon at Oval Space
The genius that is Dan Deacon returns to London to promote his latest album, "Gliss Riffer", which was self-produced and sees analogue synths working alongside string and wind instruments while the vocals are pushed to the fore to create a mesmeric kind of modern electronic folk.
