Ohhh, you know what's awesome? Go lay in a tanning bed for a while and crank up Deerhunter's Cryptograms while you're in there. You'll feel like you're in a David Lynch movie or something.
Pitchfork previews The Underdog off Spoon's forthcoming new one Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. I'm sure the Jon Brion fan-boys and -girls will be geeking out about his production work here, but I'm of the mind that the specialest special effect that's going to be found anywhere on the disk is Britt's voice. Love that howl. Get excited.
LOL, that's my hand.
I didn't have a chance to write up anything about the Animal Collective show I went to at the Metro a few weeks back, but Pitchfork has a great short review and some representative shots from that night, and Stereogum caught a show last weekend in New York that sounds every bit as good as the one I saw here. I'm definitely turning into a big Collective convert.
