Merriweather Post Pavilion – Animal Collective

With an East Coast band like the Animal Collective, that right coast mix of cultures, sights and sounds breeds a richness and depth of approach almost unknown anywhere else in America. Throughout AC’s history, the band has done its best to keep from being pigeonholed with one sound and to keep their music fun for both band and fan. With Merriweather Post Pavilion, this approach has paid big dividends.  

 Where some of their earlier work has had an insider wink of closed company fun, the new album is open for all to see. From isolated hipster to common commercial consensus, these tracks have something to offer almost everyone. It’s fifty-four minutes plus of non inclusive fun.

 The band continues to mix playful cascades of sounds of both human and machine origin. It’s like they stand at the edge of a chasm, project music outward and bath in the reverberations that mix elements of Beach Boy harmonies, Mercury Rev warbles and even the odd prog-rock addition and subtraction of vocals.

 If it’s always been a fine line between commercial and artistic success, then Animal Collective are true high wire artists because few albums of this or any other year have balanced the artistic and the available and the personal and the public with as much outright joy and effervescence as these lads have done with their latest album.
