Lightbulb Animal Collective

IMO the best release of 2005 was Animal Collective's "Feels". Experimental/indie/folk. Often catchy. The best song I thought was "Turn into something" which has inventive as all hell lyrics and a swooning chorus.

I was just listening to them for the first time today. It was interesting. Not what I expected. I'm not sure if I like it yet. But I'll listen to it more

Okay, here's a story. One night, I'm lying in bed watching Rage, and thinking "Damnit, music sucks nowadays." It was just song after song of lame modern punk and hardcore. I was just about to turn off the tv, when suddenly this song comes on. There are these weird vocal harmonies, and strange dissonant guitars and things. The whole video is in vibrant negative colours. "Whoa! What the hell is this?" It was Grass by Animal Collective. They saved my faith in modern music. I still haven't bought an album, but I'm going to soon.

Rather than starting a new thread, I decided to revive this year old one. Yes yes...double post. But I think since a year and two days has passed since the last post, it is excusable.

Now a lot has changed with me in that year. Animal Collective is just about my favorite band these days. I have almost every album of theirs (not including EPs, because those are so hard to find). But this is what I have now:

Feels
Sung Tongs
Here Comes the Indian
Hollinndagin
Spirit They've Gone Spirit They've Vanished
Danse Manatee
People EP
Prospect Hummer EP

You guys don't understand how amazing they are. I don't understand how amazing they are. But they are, indeed, amazing. I can't even write more, because I'm too busy dancing to Alvin Row.

Sung Tongs is really neat. I think that's the album most of what I have heard of Animal Collective has been from. I've been trying to hear a lot more of them and (of which I heard mostly heard Brighten The Corners) Pavement (and Wilco, too, although I've already heard a lot more of them than the other two), cause they left a good impression on me, but I don't think I have heard anything from "Feels". Very neat band, anyway. How varied are their albums? Are they all like Radically different from one another or anything? What would I like if I enjoyed things from Sung Tongs, eh?

I want to buy Young Prayer's from Panda Bear, but I haven't gotten around to it.

I like that video though.

RyanEck: Their albums are very varied.

Young Prayer is alright, but from the two songs I have heard Person Pitch is going to be amazing...and also overlooked come its release in March being that it has some huge bands to compete with

Arcade Fire
