Merriweather Post Pavilion, a fantastic album from the 60’s and 2009.

Merriweather (are these edamame?)



Merriweather Post Pavilion, by Animal Collective  is great fun. It has been deemed by the critical masses, as the album to beat this year. It is too early for me to make that call, but I can’t stop listening to it. Other sites like Pitchfork, will better describe it, as it is an ‘indie’ release. I don’t really listen to much indie, but there are a lot of bleeps and electrical sounds that make this album bounce, so let me give you my 2 cents.

You know that song “In the jungle” by the Tokens? MPP is like that, with a big helping of the Beach Boys on vocals and MGMT and Vampire Weekend on keyboards and synths. It has an island flair with lyrics born from pre and post spring break, ups and downs.

I am starting my friends with “summertime clothes” and “lion in a coma”. All and all this will be a welcome addition to any music library as it’s music is upbeat and demands a rum drink!!

It is “buy album” worthy!!!!
