I like animal collective :W

 

the original joke was about seducing a woman in part due to your music taste, bringing her back to your place, and putting on animal collective to impress her further. :lol: this was years ago, and I don't even remember why C.I. became the target of it.

 

that it actually happened (sort of) is just amazing.

 

I wouldn't be surprised if it has played in my bedroom(showing up on like shuffle or something), but it certainly wouldn't have been intentional, and I also don't remember it ever happening

I am pretty particular about my Fuck Music if I bother with putting any on tbh.

 

and by "pretty particular" I mean it's literally almost always Massive Attack

 

are you like about to go ham and pause to say 'hey hold on a minute let me put massive attack on'

I was a genealogical librarian in college and another librarian was a year older than me, from new York (instant hip cred in Wisconsin), and we both connected over our passion for sonic youth. he introduced me to ANCO with college :lol: I wonder where he is now

Spirit, Danse, Indian, Sung Tongs, half of Feels, Strawberry Jam, and Person Pitch make them one of the best bands of the 00s and I think they'll hold up pretty well.  After that I lose a lot of interest, apart from Deakin's solo album which wasn't earth-shattering but surprisingly stronger than anything the others made together or separately in the 2010s.

Im not trying to tell anyone theyre wrong because subjectivity etc but anco is one of the few bands where i struggle to come up with a single positive thing to say about them

 

Like, my girls is a pretty cool track but thats about it, other than that they almost seem confrontationally annoying

I think that all you people who loved them when you were teens are doing that standard thing where you turn your back and laugh at what you used to like but you'll co e around and see that while they're not as good as you thought they were they're not as bad as you think they are now.

the most confusing thing about animal collective, to me, is how/why a lot of people seem to think My Girls is good.

 

that track is literally all of their worst tendencies to that point rolled into a greasy ball of shit. 

 

they'd get worse, but man.

 

fuck that song forever.

to be honest, i've listened to much more of akron/family than animalcollective, but this is partly because animal collective just hasn't grabbed me. if i'm sitting there thinking "what should i listen to?" animal collective just won't come to mind, even though i've generally liked what i've heard. i'll listen to it if i'm going through my cds and thinking "hmm i should give this another try" and maybe i haven't given em enough tries yet, but i don't think there are too many bands that could get me as excited as akron/family can, and i don't anticipate animal collective being one, just from what i've heard so far.

akron/family's s/t is one of the best albums of that decade.

 

it was in fact the first album I purchased on vinyl, in college, before I even had a turntable. I lost track of it somewhere along the way, and then one of my college buddies gave me a vinyl copy as wedding present (lol) but I'm pretty sure it was just the copy from college that he'd come into possession of somehow.

baby you can drive my car  http://bsrlive.com/a...ist.php?p=12927

the minutemen three car jam double nickels on the dime  
the beatles drive my car rubber soul
the feelies the high road the good earth
the magnetic fields in my car holiday
yo la tengo roadrunner yo la tengo is murdering the classics
the zombies road runner zombie heaven
avengers car crash we are the one
first base she's boy crazy she's boy crazy *
wax museums traffic violation traffic violation
my bloody valentine drive it all over me you made me realise
the matchheads cadillac cadillac
cake stickshifts and safetybelts fashion nugget
the leopards 57 chevy kansas city slickers
r.e.m. favorite writer bad day
radiohead killer cars high and dry
the hold steady multitude of casualties separation sunday
big black power of independent trucking songs about fucking
swirlies park the car by the side of the road blonder tongue audio baton
garbo's daughter nice girls don't explode florida's dying party platter *
the barbaras summertime road summertime road 7"
the mountain goats family happiness the coroner's gambit
the cave weddings let's drive bring your love 7"
saturday looks good to me we can't work it out every night
white wires pogo 'til i puke tonight pogo 'til i puke tonight *
big star back of a car radio city
mercury rev car wash hair yerself is steam
skin trucking song killed by glam
modest mouse dramamine this is a long drive for someone with nothing to think about
sonic youth pacific coast highway sister
the raspberries drivin' around fresh
sibylle baier driving colour green
animal collective on a highway fall be kind ep
the real kids taxi boys the real kids
mv & ee with the bummer road east mountain joint green blues

 

 

oof i never quite managed to always stick to my theme but that got close

Fall Be Kind was good, that came out after MPP didn't it, or did it not? If it did it was literally the last good thing they did.

 

In The Flowers and Bluish were the only good tracks on MPP. 

 

Water Curses the song is still fucking wonderful.
