The Songs That Saved Your Life 1


Breaking my own mental rules for this blog by making a non-review post.

This is a song I really like. It’s from ‘Spirit They’ve Gone, Spirit They’ve Vanished’ by the proto-Animal Collective (originally released under the name Avey Tare and Panda Bear).

I know a lot of people are just listening to Strawberry Jam, and that as far as most people get in their lifetimes is Feels and Sung Tongs. So I wanted to share an earlier song.

It’s not kooky, to use a ridiculous word people have used in relation to Animal Collective too often. It doesn’t sound like it’s from a campfire singalong. There aren’t any tribal drums or vocals. It has great lyrics. And a sort of really carefully constructed fragile sound that reminds me of a spider-web with dew on it for some reason. AND it drops at 5.15 into one of those bits that makes me punch the air with happiness.

It’s fantastic. Enjoy it.
