This week’s Music Monday band is Animal Collective (AnCo) with Summertime Clothes. I am not sure which is stranger this music video or Animal Collective in General.

The album this song is from, ‘Merriweather Post Pavilion’, is the first AnCo album I was able to listen to and enjoy from beginning to end. Some hardcore fans hate it because they feel it’s to mainstream. Luckily, I am able to keep my inter-hipster in check so I can enjoy it for what it is, a really good album to listen to when you want to escape but your inter-straightedge will not let you do drugs.

Animal Collective is a band currently based in New York City but was originally from Baltimore, Maryland. The band consists of Avey Tare (David Portner), Panda Bear (Noah Lennox), Deacon (Josh Dibb), and Geologist (Brian Weitz). The band members met in school and started recording together in various forms of collaboration from a young age. Right now the band is on a hiatus so they can focus on creating and writing music.

    OMG I almost didn’t survive that video. Today’s Pink Floyd?

    Their best track from the last album is definitely “My Girls”.

    @Baconnaise: I enjoy “My Girls” but I like ‘Bluish” the most.

    @Dug: I glad you made it to the end of the video!
