I've liked Animal Collective for a hot minute now, but they're a hard sell for most. Weylin turned me onto them a couple of years ago, though i'd heard about them for a even hotter minute, most likey through lee. I remember listening to " Feels" on my iPod walking through Hitchcock woods, and falling for it. I would drop 'Leaf House" from Sung Tongs randomly into my sets at cuizine. Last year's "Strawberry Jam" did little for me, but Panda Bear's "Person Pitch" was a favorite.
I'm not used to the band's i like having a prodiguous output, so "Merriweather Post Pavilion", close on the heel of "Strawberry Jam" and the interm EP "Water Curses" was unexpected and suprising. Check it out:
I love this album. Favorites are: my girls, daily routine, blusih, summertime clothes, brothersport. This video is good but probably not a classic, but i like the things it reminds me of: taking LSD and amatuerishly fucking around with music. I'm not saying that's what animal collective is doing; but if it was they should be really proud of themselves.
