Here’s Dan Deacon’s contribution to this summer’s Adult Swim Singles Program – “Why Am I On This Cloud?” which Deacon put together by remixing elements from the “USA” suite on his latest record America. The end product may be titled like something out of a Stefon sketch on SNL, but it sounds more in the vein of our favorite Deacon material, like the best pump-up jam ever, with a cheer-along backbeat and a pounding, percussive pulse. Check it out.
