How can you describe Animal Collective? With every new record you hold your breath. Early releases like Spirit They’ve Gone and Here Comes The Indian pulled each other apart in a kaleidoscope of ideas. Sung Tongs leapt out of the speakers full of sophisticated, primitive campfire hollers and harmonies. Feels was more mysterious and celestial, a little more introverted. Throughout their recordings the band always sound starry eyed, as if intoxicated by their ability to fuse a basic need to pummel and scream into some strange new harmony. In terms of its scale and vision Strawberry Jam feels like space dust and radar falling on the desert and making it bloom. As giddy as an unplanned run down a hill the album spins itself around deliriously with its first three tracks. Peacebone, Unsolved Mysteries and Chores are all whirligigs of the band’s DNA. Clusters of synths, loping rhythms and lyrical bursts of high pitched filigree rushing to fall over each other. Imagine the teenage thrill of a drive-in movie that’s happening right now in a different dimension.
You want even more televised funk in your life? Here’s your chance. Watch these two killer performances Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings turned in on the west coast of their sold-out national tour.
