USA, 2004, freak folk / neo-psychedelia / avant-folk

Animal CollectiveSung Tongs: I get the sense that the Collective is more interested in exploring the human animal as a biological sound-making machine. Many of the vocals on this album ripple past my ears like my head is underwater in a fast-flowing stream. They do not flow to my heart but are tangential in their significance, like it’s all an experiment. And don’t forget the most profound thing the Collective ever sang: “you don’t have to go to college.”
