Did You See The Words

This song sounds very good loud.

Again, Avey takes the lead. But that's okay, Tjalling likes Avey

Laughing Hieroglyphic

The opening track of Avey Tare's solo album Down There, Laughing Hieroglyphic:

It's my favourite track on the album.

Top Comment? It's earnest:

This song gives me the chills every time i hear it. So much emotion. I used to wish i lived in the 60's or 70's for all the good music that happened back then. I know now that future generations will look back on this music and wish they were around for this genius.

Right, enough Avey Tare. This is a blog about my man-love for Panda Bear.

Here's #1 off Strawberry Jam:

Both top comments are good:
TheSchimmi: Listening to Animal Collective is like high diving into a pool filled with light in the most beautiful colors no one has ever seen before.

chechepepe007: this song is like if you dropped some acid, then a jellyfish took you into outerspace and then it had babies and the babies created a planet out of waffles and you were the king of that planet. thats kinds like exactly what this song is. 

I hate to say it, but chechepepe007 could well be right here.

If he likes Avey Tare, Avey Tare he shall have.

Again, from Pitchfork:

The galloping opener "Peacebone" sets the scene; Animal Collective don't seem exactly like a rock band on Strawberry Jam. There are odd sounds of indeterminate origin, and textures vaguely associated with circus music crop up regularly. Here, the melodic buoyancy and junk-shop keyboards stomping along behind Avey Tare's voice create a ramshackle backdrop for a story of a monster in a maze, strange fossils in a natural history museum, and plenty of other stuff (when Avey gets rolling, he's pretty verbose).

Today feel like the lucky one

The last track on Down There:
