If you haven’t heard of Animal Collective yet, get out from under that rock and put on your headphones. Their most recent LP, Merriweather Post Pavilion, Made almost every year-end best of list when it was released, and is cited as the most accessible of Animal Collective’s albums, trading in their previous sound oddities and time signature changes for a sound that new comers would find easier to dip their feet into and understand. Without a doubt, the Animal Collective flavor was left fully intact, and new fans came in droves and proceeded to rip through their entire back catalog. Here is the closing song from Merriweather Post Pavilion, titled “Brother Sport,” a shout out from band member Panda Bear to his little brother, trying to help him move on from all the pain and sorrow the brothers felt when their father past away a few years ago.
The video is kicking, to boot.
