Animal Collective – Summertime Clothes

Animal Collective. What can we say ┬áthat hasn’t already been said a million times before. Merriweather Post Pavilion is good. It’s real good. The numero uno on many music blogger’s 2009 lists. Along with “My Girls,” this is one of the catchier songs on the album. For comparison imagine MGMT’s “Time to Pretend” was fused with Duran Duran’s “Rio” in a musical kaleidoscope. Do it.
