How do we describe D'eon? Opening up for Games at Glasslands last week he came out in a flowy shirt, wielding a Midi keyboard and a voice that sits somewhere to the left of Montell Jordan's nasal croon. It was a perplexing set of digital funk and weird vocal intonations. Like going to a soul show and finding out that everyone took Peyote except you. Not too long ago, D'eon posted a downloadable Soundcloud mix of his own music. It is awesome and perplexing and all-encompassing and in some ways even a little new-agey without being annoying about it. Also, he is super not psyched on America.
