A Question About ANIMAL COLLECTIVE

Pitchfork contributor Tom Ewing writes…

tomewing:

Hello Tumblr. I would like yr help with a question about Animal Collective, and it is this: Why do Animal Collective matter (both in general and to the ppl who like them)?

But! READ THIS BIT BEFORE YOU ANSWER - I do not really want snarky responses. :) Whether you think Animal Collective are great or not, a lot of people do think that, so I’d like to understand them better, either via personal testimony or yr measured and generous observation. Thank you!

The hyperactive, carnival-ride-to-freaksville new Animal Collective song, "Today’s Supernatural", is a Best New Track.



"It was really important for us to do something that sounded a little bit rawer, more excitable. Higher energy. To me, Merriweather has this more mellow atmosphere; the pace and tempos on this one are a lot quicker. We just wanted to do a lot of jammers, and not a lot of ambient, spacey stuff. It was nice to take a break from that."
