What are you listening to nowadays? I have one:

1) The Gaslight Anthem: couple of guys from NJ. They play straight up rock reminiscent of The Boss. They killed on Letterman the other night:

Beirut is some good ****. There is a video somewhere of them doing an impromptu song as they were walking down some street in Paris, and then they carried it into a bar and get people to join in - the funny thing being that the video was supposed to be about a different band

I enjoy the National quite a bit. However, I was disappointed in their live show. Not that it wasnt quality, but you expect much more in a live setting from bands with that type of emotional depth. They ended every song with the same delay-drenched noise creshendo though. So much so that my non-musician friends noticed it and commented on it..."hey, does this band have the same ending for every song?" To which I replied, "yes", because they did. Little things like that cheapened the show. Although they did play in one of the coolest venues in Dallas. I basically saw them in an old theater.

I haven't listened to Person Pitch but I am pretty familiar with Panda Bear's stuff. I like it okay, not nearly as much as Animal Collective's stuff. You are right though, that there are a lot of similarities and crossovers.

I'll also add my nod for The National, Islands, and Skeletons. All groups I listen to pretty heavily.

Having seen The National right after they released Alligator, and then again after Boxer came out (a couple years later) and the hype picked up, I can totally agree with you.

I saw them in a small club in L.A. when they released Alligator and they were on fire. Matt Berniger was singing his balls off, throat all red and and sweaty. Then I saw them in S.F. after Boxer came out and they were playing like a lounge band. Still, awesome band.

I'm a little bit of of a Ween fanatic. Seen them 12 times so far... talk about an awesome live show. They almost never have anyone open for them and just play the **** out of 2-3 hours on average.

Choosing a favorite Ween album is a little like trying to pick your favorite child. They all have such different things going on, they don't really compare to each other very well. I guess Chocolate and Cheese and The Mollusk are probably the two I listen to the most. The Pod is fantastic, as is Shinola and Cucaracha. I'm not as big a fan of White Pepper or Quebec, but I can still sing them pretty much word for word.

The thing I love most about Ween, is that they are a band that has flown under the mainstream radar their entire careers, yet still have a huge following. They do **** their way and every album has a different sound.

I like Wilson much better. Any time you can hear a song and it takes you to another place, you consider that song a success. Wilson and the Beach Boys were masters at that. They created a beautiful space musically.

Bands like Panda Bear and AC are drawing on the space that Wilson created...the sparce ryhthms, the jangling instrumentation, the vocal style, the harmonies, the melodic bass work.

Its kind of funny because rock music has drawn so much from the beatles line of descent for so long, and now we are seeing a retroact towards the Beach Boys.

That's why IMO Steely Dan is on of the greatest bands ever. Tons of great musicians made up the different Dan bands but they all had jazz chops. The music always get's visual in my head. For everyone you might picture a different place but Fagan and Becker have a way of writing songs that took you on a journey and told you a story.

But also Brian Wilson was a genius, Skillet is right on with that. Pet Sounds is an album that influenced the Beatles. Many things Beatles get credit for were really done first by the Beach Boys on the Pet Sounds album. John Lennon basically even said that.

But also Brian Wilson was a genius, Skillet is right on with that. Pet Sounds is an album that influenced the Beatles. Many things Beatles get credit for were really done first by the Beach Boys on the Pet Sounds album. John Lennon basically even said that.

I think that Lennon may have been gracious with that, as the Beatles really presented a unique synthesis of alot of different things as well as their own contributions to where music would go after them.

Pet Sounds was no doubt an influence though.

Loved these guys before they went to $hit ... But at one point in time i couldn't name a band that was more talented member for member as a unit ...
Unreal drummer and why i started playing drums , great bassist , dual lead players , and Tate was just killer... edit: Mindcrime is prob in my top 10 fav cds ...


Mindcrime is my clear no.1 ... I have many CDs with better songs, but well..as a whole, Mindcrime is no.1 for me since 20 years.
Finally got to see them live last year at a festival.. performing Mindcrime 1 and 2 in full length... after Mindcrime I tried to watch Mindcrime 2, but just couldn't stand it.

Yeah I'm not implying at all it was a rip off. Only that Lennon was inspired by the way Wilson layered the vocal harmonies. They way the harmonic lines moved with the melody was like a melody in of itself. That is the main reason Brian Wilson so respected. Sometimes when harmonies get to thick you get that gospel choir type sound, but Wilson was able to do it in a subtle way that didn't detract from the core melody.

He really is a genius. Lennon also though i love Lennon. I wasn't trying to diminish what he did for music.

Amazing. I actually typed that and then erased it at the last minute. I think they do it better than Brian Wilson, but you are right, there is no denying the similarities.

Panda Bear definitly goes for that sunny, surf, Wilson aesthetic, especially in the vocals. I've heard him admit as much in interviews. I just love the way it blends with the electronic texture.

The other part of their greatness is how they bring it together with the other singer, Avey Tare, whose voice is a little more...not sure what the right word is (punk/rough/grungy maybe?). I thought the latest album did a great job of using the two voices together, though I'll admit missing some of the screaming Tare had in previous albums. His singing on For Reverend Green (along with the song Grass) won me over to them in the first place.

You can hear the Pet Sounds influence in Sgt. Peppers' and Abbey Road. Not just the harmonies, but in songs like Mean Mr. Mustard and Maxwell's Silver Hammer.

Damn I remember this. But I also have a video where Fagan and Becker say it isn't true. But with those two you never know they are pretty eccentric.

Here is my guess......Chevy Chase?

Here is what Fagan and Becker say about it:

Phil Is it true that Chevy Chase was once a drummer with Steely Dan?
Walter No that's not true.
Donald We went to college with Chevy and before we ever thought of the idea of Steely Dan we used to do pick up dates with Chevy on drums. He was a very good drummer. We was also one of the funniest drummers.
Donald He maybe wasn't THE funniest drummer but one of the funniest.

Ok I listened for like 3 and half minutes because I have an open mind!!!

It was pretty annoying IMO and not near as cool as the electronic I used to hear done by random dudes at raves back in the 90's all over LA.

I'm not bagging on electronic it can be cool in the right setting, but IMO that isn't even good electronic.

Now I'm not really into it enough to say i guess but that didn't sound catchy, just annoying and droning on and on....and on.

Haha, you reminded me of an insightful review of one of their earlier (even more esoteric) songs that nails why some people love this music and some people hate it: http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/article/record_review/40653/Animal_Collective_People_EP (yes, pitchfork, insufferable as it often is)

"People" is a pretty good example of what turns some off from Animal Collective. The whole song is just a repeating guitar line, a held chord, some squiggly percussion, and Avey Tare doing a little self-stim call-and-response, alternating "Yeah, ye-AH" with the equally profound "Yeah, YE-ah". Oh, and screaming "People!!!" at throat-shredding volume through a distortion pedal every few bars, followed by a banshee wail that echoes between the speakers via a crude delay. And that's about it...


Here's the thing though: "People" is also a good example of what turns the rest of us on to Animal Collective. I'm hearing a horizontal piece of music, built from a single idea that takes its time to explore the (admittedly limited) possibilities of its premise, and then moves on. And the peaks are thrilling; with sufficient volume this thing induces the sort of satisfying bliss only possible through well-executed drone rock. The song doesn't mean anything, of course, and I'm sure it wasn't difficult to make, but none of that matters: It still sounds damn good while managing to transport me to a very specific place.


Which is pretty much a long way of saying, different strokes for different folks. I guess I would just add that I wouldn't judge them based on electronic music in general--most their early stuff is very acoustic based/organic. More or less they just use electronic sounds now to do the many of the same kinds of things musically they were doing before.

Anyway, I always find it fascinating how differently people can react to various kinds of music/movies/art.

That was why I said it with a grain of salt. Music is art and art is subjective. It's in the eye of the beholder, or in this case the listener..

But if you listen to their CD for a few weeks all the songs start to sound the same, but great band.

You and I are on the same wavelength musically. I'm eagerly awaiting the new Spoon album too. I downloaded the got nuffin EP a while back. I still think their best work was the "Girls Can Tell" album. God Damn. "Fitted Shirt" for teh win.

I wasnt a big fan of the last Vampire Weekend album, buts this stuff is alot better written. I dig some Spoon as well.

On the Vampire Weekend vibe...check out Born Ruffians, particularly the tune "Foxes Mate for Life". Fun stuff.

Yeah. I'm a fan of pretty much all the Spencer Krug/Dan Boeckner/Wolf Parade/Sunset Rubdown/Handsome Furs material. Very prolific but consistently good.

I really need to listen to the their earlier few albums more. Right now, though, at gunpoint I might say "Kill the Moonlight" is my favorite.
