Animal Collective’s latest album, Merriweather Post Pavillion, has been getting a tremendous amount of play in my walkman (iPOD, iPhone, whatever). The first time I listened, I thought I should take some ecstasy. The second time I listened, I took some ecstasy (that’s a lie, I don’t know where to find any. Faded counts right?). The third time and continuing to the present, I have concluded that this is a perfect album for sober and demented ears alike. One song, Bluish, has stuck out to me since it is seriously the most Billboard friendly song on the album. Not that that is a bad thing, the song is just that awesome. I can only imagine the advertisers and brands (MTV’s hills/city, Teen Vogue, Revlon/haircare/womanly goods) clamoring to get usage rights for it. Anyway, if you haven’t heard it, now you can. Go buy the album.
Animal Collective, Bluish
