of course, i don't want any sassback from people who've mentioned them before me. i've listened to them for a while and due to my cyclic music listening nature, i'm feeling them again.
spirit they're gone spirit they've vanished and campfire songs are great. pretty much everything i've heard is. kind of hard for the mainstream audience to get into, but we're open here.

I really like how they are weird and quirky, but not really in a forced sort of way. And I do enjoy their interpretation of african music, which you tend not to hear in indie bands so much. It's very upbeat but not in a syrupy poppy way.
I need to listen to their other stuff, as well as all the side projects. I thought there was something just released which featured some of the members, I thought it was Stars Like Fleas, but I looked up the info and didn't find any mentioned of Animal Collective.
Also, they have a new LP out this year, called Sung Tongs, or something like that.

I've tried to keep away from listening to it for a while because I wanted to actually buy the album before wearing it out, but it's soooo good.
It's unique because a lot of "trippy" music feels like the artists dropped a load of drugs but are still working within the normal confines of songs, but this really feels like mind altering substances condensed into audio form. It's really the difference between a band singing about sci fi and fantasy stuff, which actually conveys instead images of nerds sitting around playind DnD, and actually being strapped to the rocket yourself and being blasted into space. In their abstractness, they're able to convey a lot more vivid imagery than most bands I've heard.

edit: Also, does anyone actually own the album? I'm confused as to what's the correct track order. The allmusic.com review uses the 12 minute track lead off as the first song, while the track listing below is different, and tinymixtapes.com uses that tracklisting. I guess it doesn't matter that much since I'm going to try and pick it up at some point, but it would be nice to know beforehand.
