Animal Collective – Here Comes The Indian

New York weirdos make a strange, glorious noise

Trending Now

Raised around Baltimore but currently based in the artistic hotbed of Brooklyn, NY, the Animal Collective comprises a bunch of musical iconoclasts long on avant-garde conceptual theory and short on patience for pop tropes. To call them avant-rock would be too limiting; though there are elements of electronica, psychedelic freakout and DIY post-punk madness in their sound, Here Comes The Indian is no spot-the-influence parlour game. If anything, the Collective’s gloriously skewed perspective and kitchen-sink production make them spiritual kin to The Residents, whose absurdist humour the AC also shares, with members sporting names like Panda Bear and Geologist.
