I’m sorry for the Animal Collective obsession that’s been going on lately. I just love AC too damn much. Still, I’m about to add yet another digital hug to the lovefest. Late last year, AC released an Australia-only, EP called People. Now, after a few months of waiting, emailing, and a little crying, my import finally arrived yesterday. I love it. It’s classic Animal Collective, with all the screaming, backwards-sounding lyrics, and strange composition you’d expect. Right now, my favorite tracks are ‘People’ and ‘Tikwid’. ‘People’ is essentially just AC-style instrumentation, with Avey screaming “people” every few seconds. I particularly like the live version, in which you can hear Avey’s voice echoing off after every scream. Awesome.
