I Don't "Get" the Animal Collective

By theajaysharma

I saw them at Coachella several years ago and they were shit (well, the live show was shit, the album "Feels" was good).  Then I saw them last year at Sasquatch, my friend swore by them, and they were better but still not good.  And when I say, "not good", I mean they are listenable but I can't ever imagine a day when I am sitting around thinking, "I need to roll out that Animal Collective record, because it moves me in a way that only they can."  So it came as no surprise when Tripwire declared that I won't get their new video.  Maybe I'm just getting old.
