Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion (2009) Retail CD
Nine albums into their career, and Animal Collective have finally struck gold. Not that they struggled to turn up riches before: on the contrary, their career has been pretty fruitful. But Merriweather Post Pavilion finds the group--here represented by three of their four members, Avey Tare, Panda Bear, and Geologist--ditching the gloopy guitars of Strawberry Jam, enlisting a new collaborator (Ben Allen, a US hip-hop engineer who worked on Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy”, who supplies pleasingly thick crests of bass) and embracing a new, sunny dancefloor bounce that owes little to chemical abandonmore… and everything to the warm rush of a natural high. A good share of songwriting duties are handled by Panda Bear, meaning portions of this record--including its two highlights, “Brother Sport” and “My Girls”--recall the Beach Boys-esque vocal harmonies and bubbling electronics of his remarkable 2007 solo album Person Pitch, albeit with a slightly more upbeat spring in its step. Other stand-out moments come with the bubbling, lovestruck “Summertime Clothes” and “In The Flowers”, drifting Pink Floyd whimsy that explodes into a romping, streamer-waving carnival mid-way through. But Merriweather is a treat throughout, essential to fanboys and newcomers alike. –– Louis Pattison
