The Animal Collective are the new wierdo yanks they all want you to like. The general chit chat about this band has seen them linked with the likes of Caroliner and Sun City Girls. It sounds like neither but does have the strung out experimentation of both married with the type of stretched, skewed melodies you might hope Flaming Lips would do if they shaved off their beards and got back to making interesting left field music. Lots of glitches and noise but what sets this aside from the type of Black Dice sheer experimentation (yawn) is the use of  guitar, vocals and actual tunes. Its wildly experimental AND hummable. Something you don't get too much. Also it sounds pretty much (lazy references above excepted) like no-one. At last, forward thinking music in 2003. 2 LP's is maybe pushing it but if you've got time on your hands and want something the opposite of the bland please-like-me around in these torrid times then look no further. Spirit They're Gone/Danse Manatee is on Fat Cat
