anyone heard of them? what do you think? they put on a ridiculous, incoherent, noisy live show but there recorded stuff is good.

check my Campfire Songs thread from earlier today

roger adultery (roger adultery), Monday, 7 April 2003 23:10 (nineteen years ago) link

I saw them open for Wolf Eyes at the CPOP Gallery in Detroit last year and man, they were great. I was less impressed with the album I bought from them -- it seemed a little restrained after the chaos of the live, and reminded me of Mercury Rev in some ways, but it was pretty good. They've got something new out, don't they?

Jeff Sumner (Jeff Sumner), Monday, 7 April 2003 23:11 (nineteen years ago) link

Jeff - yes. Campfire Songs, on Catsup Plate, and it sounds as much like Mercury Rev as Bryan Adams sounds like Borbetomagus. Also, if you can find it, their live album is astonishingly great

roger adultery (roger adultery), Monday, 7 April 2003 23:20 (nineteen years ago) link

well when i saw them it was only 2 people and they got taken off the stage as they made 150 people leave the venue. i told the guitarist it was the most ridiculous, fantastic thing id ever seen.

tom cleveland, Tuesday, 8 April 2003 01:22 (nineteen years ago) link

hands down, one of the most amazing bands/groups going today.

music for animals.


msp, Tuesday, 8 April 2003 14:31 (nineteen years ago) link

Check out the Avey Tare et al.'s albums Spirit They've Gone, Spirit They've Vanished and Danse Manatee. Great stuff. I saw them live last April and it was a really great show; they started off wailing almost Greek-chorus like keeing or whatever. Totally great.

Andy Beckerman, Tuesday, 8 April 2003 14:35 (nineteen years ago) link

english kids: they're playing in brighton alongside black dice and others at some fatcat records show case... can't fucking wait

snake assassin, Tuesday, 8 April 2003 14:41 (nineteen years ago) link

'danse manatee' is utter genius..... the new material i saw them doing last year was totally explosive, and i'm excited to see what their next record will be like.

j fail (cenotaph), Tuesday, 8 April 2003 14:44 (nineteen years ago) link

I agree, "Danse Manatee" rules. Wish I hadn't slept on the live album before it totally disappeared, though...

die9o (dhadis), Tuesday, 8 April 2003 14:52 (nineteen years ago) link

yeah, was that live album 'out' for about 5 seconds or is it just my imagination?

your null fame (yournullfame), Tuesday, 8 April 2003 15:01 (nineteen years ago) link

Not very many of them were pressed. I remember seeing it at Other Music a couple of times, but then it disappeared.

die9o (dhadis), Tuesday, 8 April 2003 15:16 (nineteen years ago) link

yeah... it was a tremendously small pressing... they didn't even make it out of their west coast leg of their tour with any copies.

anybody pick up any of their t-shirts on their last tour? i bought one. bright turquoise with flourescent designs akin to danse manatee the art! it's too small sadly. the wife wears it.

gygax! (gygax!), Tuesday, 8 April 2003 15:43 (nineteen years ago) link

they pressed 300 - i ordered 15 copies for my distro and went through em damn quickly. i shoulda ordered 30.

j fail (cenotaph), Tuesday, 8 April 2003 17:23 (nineteen years ago) link

the covers were just other record covers turned inside out - and not dollar records, either - mine is Simon Joyner's Joesephine EP. The orange paint flakes like crazy though, every time I put that record on (which is often) i have to break out the dust-buster. Well worth the trouble, though

roger adultery (roger adultery), Tuesday, 8 April 2003 18:04 (nineteen years ago) link

I had heard the live record was put out by a Secretly Canadian side label, and that all the covers are just reappropriated SC record covers.

die9o (dhadis), Tuesday, 8 April 2003 19:07 (nineteen years ago) link

that's the whole focus of the st. ives label - to recycle extra LP sleeves. i think my animal collective LP is on the inside of an old chokehold LP!
i believe they also put out a record for the microphones and sold through those even quicker, i bet.

j fail (cenotaph), Tuesday, 8 April 2003 19:17 (nineteen years ago) link

so i'm listening to the avery tare and panda bear lp (the first one i think) and.. well it's underwhelming. if animal collective sound like this i'm not too excited anymore. the singer has that annoying, nasal whine a bit like every other us schmindie vocalist out but especially like the guy from flaming lips. the first song has these amazing trippy, kind of saccharine but slightly sinister washes of noise, but then by 'bat you'll fly' it sounds like.. um, pavement. and mercury rev. and tortoise. and lots of other bands i don't really like. is it supposed to sound like this? can anyone convince me otherwise? and how are animal collective different? i was really looking forward to there show over here with black dice in may

i don't know if you will come back to this, but if you are looking for a more experimental sound, I would definitely advise you to pick up some newer AC recordings. Danse Manatee and the live album are out of print, Campfire Songs is beutiful and acoustic, so you might want to wait until Here Comes the Indian comes out in June, it is really crazy and unique and good

Here Comes the Indian came out and I think it is their best record.

j fail (cenotaph), Thursday, 19 June 2003 19:13 (nineteen years ago) link

i'm pretty well blown away by it too. still not my favorite, but definitely a close second to the live album. I'd recommend it highly.

Heard them playing this album at Rocks in Your Head (age-old Soho record store here in NYC) this week and was completely struck by it in a weird sort've "what IS this?" sorta way.

This could sneak up to become my fave from this year if they don't watch out.

dleone (dleone), Thursday, 31 July 2003 16:46 (nineteen years ago) link

I was totally jazzed to see Avery Tare and Panda Bear about a month ago, and I was so, so bored and disappointed. I haven't heard the records, and I don't know if the full group is any good, but wow. Sounded like Beaches and Canyons except somehow even more aimless and formless. Total snoozer dud.

Tom Breihan (Tom Breihan), Thursday, 31 July 2003 16:53 (nineteen years ago) link

I saw them earlier this month, and though they didn't really sound too much like the record, I wasn't disappointed. I guess in a pinch I could probably do without so much "autistic drumming" (my friend's description). But I thought they seemed remarkably "together", as in I don't think it was all aimless, it sounded like they were actually playing "songs".

dleone (dleone), Thursday, 31 July 2003 16:57 (nineteen years ago) link

I think the Beaches and Canyons comparison is pretty apt, actually. They don't necessarily sound similar, but this is what I was getting at w/my (half-tongue-in-cheek) New Age comment.

I mean it as something positive -- these are records I listen to in a less-than-conscious way. Maybe akin to what Eno was talking about way back when regarding his "ambient" music, but with a more organic (shitty word, sorry) feel.

they had promo copies of it sent in the states. the new art is *unfortunate* but at least it'll hit outside of new york city. i hear they are recording new 'songy' stuff as a duo. it should be kin to what they were doing on tour, which i heard was telepathic.

I love this band with all of my little heart. But mostly when I'm on a little bit of the something something.

Ian Johnson (orion), Saturday, 29 November 2003 22:33 (nineteen years ago) link

I'm a fan. I bought Danse Manatee when it came out, because it was cheap and it looked interesting, and then I emailed the address to find out more about them. This was what, two years ago? I was still in school. One of the guys from the band emailed me back, and told me about Spirit, which I bought as soon as it was back in stock at Other Music. I really love the Spirit album, I think it's one of the most beautiful art records that I've ever heard. I like the Campfire Music and Here Comes The Indian, but nothing on either of them blows me away as much as "Penny Dreadfuls" or "Essplode."

God bless them. I hope that Avey Tare eventually comes around to making more "pop" records at some point, though. I think that melody, lyrics, and structure suits their style very well. I can appreciate the crazier, more free-form music, but it doesn't move me nearly as much.

Matthew Perpetua (Matthew Perpetua), Sunday, 30 November 2003 00:58 (nineteen years ago) link

I was excited to hear that Panda Bear "opened" for the Kompakt gig in NYC recently by singing over a DJ's tracks, just like that cute Colette DJ from Chicago (or is it L.A. now?). Really like their albums, but I'd love to get ahold of a live set of theirs. Like Mr. Quintron and various garage bands I've seen recently, they really seem to shine the most when they play live, and no studio recording is going to capture what they're capable of. They're grrrrr-eat!

not a big fan myself but thought you'd get a kick out of this piece by the great Rod Smith:

M Matos (M Matos), Monday, 1 December 2003 05:25 (nineteen years ago) link

The Jane CDRs are really good. They made very very few of them and sold them at Other Music.
The new AT and PB record will be quite a bit poppier than anything recently and should be amazing. I don't think it is coming out for a quite a while, unfortunately, even though they already recorded it.

Magic City (ano ano), Monday, 1 December 2003 17:03 (nineteen years ago) link

My favorite AC thing in the last while is actually the Deakin solo record

J. Sam, Wednesday, 20 October 2021 21:40 (one year ago) link

Prester John” is the result of two distinct songs—one by Avey Tare and one by Panda Bear—woven together

i dont get how this (from pitchfork) could be true.. its just one melody the whole time?

flopson, Wednesday, 20 October 2021 22:00 (one year ago) link

nice melody though

flopson, Wednesday, 20 October 2021 22:00 (one year ago) link

Cautiously optimistic. This sounds better than most of their material from the past decade, however Deakin is not involved in the whole album and this is described as the best song from fans who’ve apparently heard pretty much the whole record live at this point?

I feel bad for rejecting Animal Collective post Centipede Hz. I think I owe it to them for all the good times to check this new one out.

Loved Avey Tare's Eucalyptus whenever that came out. Up there with my favourites from the AnCo catalogue. Ambient AnCo > Chaotic AnCo = Pop AnCo

hrep (H.P), Saturday, 29 January 2022 02:46 (one year ago) link

I think Centipede might actually be my favorite album of theirs

frogbs, Saturday, 29 January 2022 03:02 (one year ago) link

It's got some tight melody's I'll give it that. I put it on a few months ago and thought it had aged well.

hrep (H.P), Saturday, 29 January 2022 03:12 (one year ago) link

This Prester John track is great

hrep (H.P), Saturday, 29 January 2022 03:13 (one year ago) link

I really love a lot of the Centipede tracks - Wide Eyed and Monkey Riches especially - but I've really started to appreciate Rosie Oh sounding like a really fucked up thing from Ween's The Mollusk. like even Ween could never dream of something that mutated

frogbs, Saturday, 29 January 2022 04:00 (one year ago) link

Listened to Centipede HZ again on this threads inspiration. Anco at its most prog but damn can they spin a banging melody. Very tight collection of songs. OTM re: Ween comparison. Applesauce might be their best singalong, so many fun parts to put your voice to.
The album really fits into the PC Music era. Would love to hear a version of the album without any vocals as the instrumentation stands on its own as a highly developed world. Could see this hypothetical version released on warp as a new artist and pull in handsome reviews.

hrep (H.P), Tuesday, 1 February 2022 00:25 (one year ago) link

many years on, with some diversions and evidence to the contrary (what the hell is that ending to applesauce?), I am still convinced Avey Tare is a genius of songwriting, one of the best of 2000's. I regret the stigma that attached to AnCo which undervalued how great their songwriting really is (regardless of opinion on style).
Spirit they've gone is the miracle that proves my point. April and the phantom, Penny Dreadfuls and Alvin Row as the beginning of your songwriting output? Get out of here!

Speaking of reevaluations: Down There. Will take it above Person Pitch any day; it deserved an equal amount of praise. Laughing Hieroglyphic best song on depression? Best Anco Melody? Most appropriate production? Best use of accordion in pop? I'm not sure, but it makes you ask.

Okay sorry I know waxing lyrical on AnCo is a nono

hrep (H.P), Tuesday, 1 February 2022 00:48 (one year ago) link

agreed that spirit is absolutely remarkable for a debut/songwriting (never heard anything as simultaneously challenging/beautiful/dark/whimsical), but i fail to hear it in any other of their records regardless of the style... maybe 'feels' at a push...

maelin, Tuesday, 1 February 2022 01:05 (one year ago) link

I'd argue Tracks 4-8 on Strawberry Jam reflect Spirits essence pretty well. In particular Cuckoo Cuckoo feels like a shorter, high production value, amalgamation of the three spirit songs I mentioned.
The thing with spirit is that it couldn't be replicated because it was a coming of age album (all arguments to the contrary need to read through the lyrics again.) and the thing with coming of age is you can only do it once. A spirit 2.0 would not have the maturity present in making an album like that at their immature age. I don't have much time for Danse Manatee but I do think it was the right choice in their progression.

AnCo really wear their emotional growth/stages on their sleeves with each album. From the distance there is a clear storyline progressing in their discography. Centipede got hit because it was the first plateau in their emotional progression. relative plateau anyway because I think there were still some newly developed heart on sleeve moments.

Spirit carried on throughout their discography with the childhood motif in their lyrics. Spirit was the concentrate of lost innocence in lyrics which leak onto every album and define AnCo's lyrics.: ahhhh good country, doggy, slippi, banshee beat, #1 and cuckoo cuckoo, brother sport, applesauce, etc.

hrep (H.P), Tuesday, 1 February 2022 04:11 (one year ago) link

Spirit has a very unique sound to it, something that I think is only really possible in a debut album - everything is so crisp and paper thin but not in a way I think anyone would want to replicate. Outside of the very low bass everything seems to occupy this high frequency, it's like a chunk of it is missing or something. Avey's voice almost hasn't even dropped yet, he doesn't really sound like that on any other album. I have a live recording where they do "Alvin Row" and it's amazing & clearly they're a way better band...but it's not as ethereal as it is on the album.

fwiw I'm not sure how I rate it as an album. it does a really good job pissing me off right off the bat. its definitely got some magic to it though. personally, I feel their 5 best are Feels, Strawberry, MPP, Centipede, and Painting With. the 5 most recent lol

new album appears to have leaked. RYM people seem to like it. I suppose I'll grab a copy when it's actually out.

frogbs, Tuesday, 1 February 2022 22:20 (one year ago) link

My poor ears just can't take the frequencies involved in 'Spirit They've Vanished' so I ran it through an audio cleanup plug-in and plucked out the two main offenders, at least I can listen to it now.

Maresn3st, Tuesday, 1 February 2022 23:23 (one year ago) link

Pretty incredible to take off so hard as a band with spirit as their first album, don't think anyone could expect their MPP success 8 years on from this utterly strange debut. Forgot how abrasive the first track is, not their standout that's for sure. The noise and repetition does allow the title lyric and melody change at the 3:30 minute mark to hit harder than it should.

Written about this before, but I really believe Catcher in the Rye and Spirit They've Gone are two pieces cut from the same cloth.

hrep (H.P), Tuesday, 1 February 2022 23:37 (one year ago) link

new album is surprisingly good, a real return to form. plays to all their strengths while still breaking new ground for them & it's also the best they've ever sounded production-wise.

vibes this time are 'the 70s' and 'exotica', it's very lush & loose

ufo, Friday, 4 February 2022 01:45 (one year ago) link

that's awesome, I really liked the recent "We Go Back" single. hope the store has it in tomorrow

something was recently pointed out to me that blew my mind; proto-Animal Collective is not The Beach Boys, but rather the track "Schooldays" by Gentle Giant

Santigold also cancelled recently also exposing how unsustainable touring has become.

I’d imagined that a bigger indie act like Animal Collective wouldn’t face this challenges but the situation seems grim.

It will also become a domino effect I think, smaller venues breaking down and indie artists finding it harder and harder to do large tours. I think for international tours, indie acts will only be sustainable on big festivals and short circuits in the dates around the festival.
