Animal Collective – Merriweather Post Pavilion

January 7, 2009

Merriweather Post Pavilion is one of those albums which, after you’ve listened to it for the first time, you don’t really remember a lot, it leaves you overwhelmed with sounds but you just know that you’re gonna love it as you listen to it again and again. My ticket to the strange world of Animal Collective was the adorable Panda Bear’s solo album.

The songs here are a constant overlapping celebration, odes to joy wrapped in synthesized sounds. Most of the sounds actually come from various electronics, yet there is no sense of artificial or alienation – on the contrary, it is so much more human than anything. Like our thoughts and feelings, they unpredictably meander and twist between familiar (the sky-high melodies) and unknown (the psychedelic electronic sounds). It’s most likely one the albums which will mark the year ahead of us.
