Animal Collective : Today's Supernatural
There’s a strident thread of vocals through Today’s Supernatural that should replicate the effect of the vocals in My Girls – it should cut through the whirligig of technicolour noise and create an emotional anchor in this song. Here, it throws you even further out of whack. There’s an edge of aggression, a spitting, yowling air in Avey Tare’s voice that creates sharp peaks and drops in amongst the warped, blaring music. Oddly, it’s still kind of pop; big, dramatic and easy to follow. Animal Collective's new album, Centipede Hz, is due out in September.
