Although I really like the album, I don't think it's album of the year. I don't get the hype... I don't think it's bad at all but I don't think it's the best. I actually just finished listening to it... I like strawberry jam like 100 times better.
Some shitty band that apparently has something in common or related to Animal Collective, another shitty band. Nothing to rave about.
Well said. I looked at that list and wanted to vomit. What an awful top 50. Icky Thump was somewhere in the 30's and Kanye West is somehow in the top 20. That Kanye album is crap. Then in the little review they give him props for being able to correctly pronounce expensive name brands.
Pitchfork's entire list is disqualified because not only is 8 Diagrams on it but it's above Ghostface's album. Nobody who actually listened to both of those albums could possibly come to that conclusion.
nope. (other members are deaken, avey tare, and geologist.)
i don't question it. i like them too much to doubt their weirdness.
on wikipedia it explains.
Avey Tare because his name is David Porter and you "tare" the D off of
Panda Bear because Noah Lennox's first 4 track tape he recorded as a kid had a panda drawn on the front
Geologist because someone thought Brian Weitz studied Geology in college when it was Biology. Also the headwear he has with the light on it so he can see his controls with a dark stage lighting and it looks like a geologist's(lol funny word) in concert
Deakin because Josh Dibb used to send long letters to Avey Tare in and he signed one Conrad Deacon.
