Animal Collective – ‘Transverse Temporal Gyrus’

Brilliantly superfluous and utterly bonkers

Expanding on the more experimental parts of 2009’s ‘Merriweather Post Pavilion’, this sonic canter through the various studio cuts and live material from a performance at New York’s Guggenheim Museum marks Animal Collective at their most creative – a brilliantly superfluous and utterly bonkers soundscape of electronic skits, rasping vocals and dotted birdsong.
