AotY or something else?

Either way, My Girls is a jam.

Re: Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavillion

Do people not check out stuff that is outside of the Rock, Alt-Country, Classic Rock and 5 years ago-Indie genres?


That how a Connor Oberst album ends up at #3 in the TBY AotY poll.

Re: Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavillion

I'm not a fan of Animal Collective.

But Pitchfork gave this a 9.6. So that's saying something.

It's been the most interesting listen so far this year. Can definitely see why it's gotten so many good reviews. Anyone know if they are good to see live?

They are.

Rob didn't like their Lolla show, but to be fair, they played alot of ambient stuff. Not "the hits" so to speak.

If you like this, check out Strawberry Jam. Not too different.

That was just a little bit of snark. I've definitely listened - it's just not my thing.

I loved their Riverside Theater show though. My neck hurt was sore for weeks.
