"GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD could you please put up animal collective
isn't that why most of us on here went on sat"
[Anonymous]

APW

""The location is pretty great -- look at that view," said Brian Weitz, a.k.a. Geologist from Animal Collective, gazing out across the expanse of Liberty State Park at the skyline of Lower Manhattan. Indeed, the first thing you notice on stepping off the ferry and turning to look behind you is a cityscape that is hard to match anywhere in the world. It was day two of All Points West, the so-called "boutique" festival (meaning it accommodates 30,000 instead of 70,000) that at long last brought a weekend-long major music event to the Northeast. Saturday was the only sellout of the three-day weekend, and for good reason: Apart from the godlike Radiohead on top of the bill, there was a pretty exceptional supporting cast that included, on three stages, the Roots, Kings of Leon, Metric, the Black Angels, the Virgins, Chromeo, K'Naan and Sia.

But I began my day by speaking with one of my favorites, the Collective. A few hours before they brought their clanging, charging, joyful noise to the masses, we talked on the VIP bleachers overlooking the grounds. How great is the idea of Kings or Radiohead fans discovering Animal Collective? "That's the main reason, I think, you do festivals," said Weitz. The guys are not doing a lot of fests this summer -- they're concentrating on mixing and finishing their ninth album, due out in January -- but they were pleased to be at All Points West, in part because they were playing the main stage. While there is no doubt AC's sound is big enough to fill a large setting, Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear, is not a big fan of outdoor fests. Apparently, he and the sun "don't agree.""

it was so amazing i just wish they had a longer set
especially after realizing i spent 100 bux for them

i never took the time to venture out
but everytime i past them i wondered what the heck those polls were
did they make sound or something when you got near them?
why are they in this post did AC make the installation or something?

Most Radiohead fans are familiar with Animal Collective

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2008 10:51 AM

I’m a big fan of recorded Animal Collective but this is the second time I see them live and just not impressed. I saw Panda Bear on his short solo tour a year ago or so at the bowery and that was great. To put it simply, Animal Collective simply lacks structure live. It becomes too noisy and chaotic and don't seem to work as a band. They are all over the place kinda like an abstract expressionist painting. This might work on canvas but not with sound. ...my opinion anyway.

i am a long-time animal collective fan, though i haven't gotten into an album since sung tongs, and i was extremely disappointed with their set. it's hard to put my finger on it, they sounded too noisy, tinny, badly mixed, uninspired. i was really looking forward to seeing them, and they did nothing to break the endless mediocrity of the slew of acts prior to radiohead.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2008 11:01 AM

that's because, as others have indicated, all points west was really nothing more than a radiohead show.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2008 11:03 AM

yeah i think the only point for estatically seeing animal collective
was if you were an intense fan and knew that they might not be playing again this year

but even as a fan it wasn't the best i've seen of them
but i didn't expect it with only an hour slot
which is usually half their normal set time
i blamed the lack luster on that and them not getting a chance to fully warm up and then kill it
for apw they we just got the warm up part

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2008 11:10 AM

This whole post seems like it was done primarily out of annoyance with the commenters(ie shitty photos,little-no information,John Norris Quote).

I saw AC last fall at webster hall(they played most of these songs) and it was incredible. I suspect the size of the venue could hurt their show though. As for not having structure, I don't know what to say. Their whole show is one large unit rooted in the beeps and clicks they use to build and morph from song to song. Structure is certainly there, though in a larger, more overarching sense. That being said, I like these new songs but don't think they have as much substance to them.

Is anyone else not as happy with Avey's reworked vocals in House?

didn't know that working at mtv allows you bypass everyone else. or that only douchebags work at mtv.

hate to be mean, but have to say it - most overrated band ever. i like experimental stuff and i like one or two of their songs, but i felt completely unengaged with their live show. i assume seeing them in a dark/small club would be better, but their music after 15 minutes felt like a drone of bees that wasn't really going anywhere. I give them an A for effort but D for delivery. Not that great of a stage presence either fyi. Also, trippy visuals would have been great if i was on acid, but a little over the top otherwise.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2008 11:20 AM

as they said
they're not at their a game with festivals
see them where they're headlining and get their due time slot and when the hot sun isn't beating on you

truly who is at their bests at festivals
paid for festivals are the worst and just make you feel like you have to enjoy the show (instead of just enjoying it)cuz you paid an arm for a ticket, to be squished and sun blazed

never again

Wasn't at APW, but saw them at pfork and they were amazing. Maybe they should only play festivals when the sun sets? Let those giant LEDs loose.

Last time I saw them was at the South Street Seaport last summer. I was not too impressed with that show save for a few moments, and judging by the response to their APW set, isn't it possible that big open-space outdoor festivals and Animal Collective just don't mesh? Or, they just simply don't sound as good live as their records. Being good recorded but not good live shouldn't make them "the most overrated band ever", though.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2008 11:31 AM

I was turned onto Animal Collective by last year's Strawberry Jam, which I thought had a handful of the best songs written by any band in 2007... Reverend Green, Peacebone, and Fireworks were all masterpieces... then I saw them live at APW. And I was stunned by how awful it was. Torture on the ears. High pitched shrieking noises, rumbling bass that shook your whole body like an earthquake, pure chaos of noise. Maybe the sound issues weren't entirely their fault, but I felt like they didn't even make an effort to entertain people by playing a good selection of their best songs. And Fireworks just doesn't need to go on and on for 20 minutes. It's a good song, but enough already. The disjointedness of it, that they kept transitioning to other songs and then returning to it, kind of ruined it.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2008 11:34 AM

the crazy thing is they sound their best live
with the bass and all
but then again i loved the SSS show one of my faves
i think everybody was just cranky about shelling out 100 dollars when it comes to ppl use to 8-20 dollar shows
or free in the summer time
but this beside siren is what tri state has for us in terms of festivals so we went

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2008 11:38 AM

ok obviously seeing three guys (only one of which is really moving around) in a crowd of 10,000 poeople (or however many people watched them) isn't going to be as inspiring as seeing them in a more intimate, indoor and dark setting. You are out at a festival in the summer and you have been standing and walking around all day. Of course its not going to be the best situation. Animal Collective in my opinion rocked the house more then anybody i saw. They were the loudest and the group that gave me the most body movement. I wish that I could have simply seen the roots while it was about to get dark then Animal Collective open for Radiohead once it got dark. I really enjoy the animal collective type of music in the dark. I thought AC was awesome, it was my first time seeing them so I have no way to complain. I loved it as well as the roots and Radiohead which had the best visual experience of any band ever

I was at both Pfork and APW. I had a significantly better time at Pfork because it was the evening and they had a great laser light show! AC aims to stimulate as many senses as possible and visually, APW didn't live up to my great Pfork experience.

Pfork also didn't have a 5 beer limit...

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2008 11:54 AM

yeah was not impressed with their live show - saw them at webster hall last fall too - and the funny thing is Avey complained about the bass at that venue when it sounded great, and at APW when it sucked, there was nothing. iirrroonnnyyyy. they're still great though.

I'm still not getting the joke...

I saw these clowns at Toronto's Rogers Picnic festival this summer. And while, it was a great chance for everyone to take a break from the day's music and go to the beer tent, I can't figure how they made it onto a music bill.

Who knows? Maybe once they learn how to play their instruments, they might grow up to become real live musicians. But, shouldn't they be practicing in their basement instead of out in public??

Haven't been too impressed with the band's live show either. Their recorded stuff is great, but live there's just something missing. Maybe its a lack of stage presence or a song selection that favors the band more than the crowd. They still make interesting albums though.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2008 11:26 PM

Animal Collective has gotten louder and noisier each time they have toured. I saw them back before Sung Tongs came out when they were more acoustic-based and trying out the Sung Tongs tracks. Then they got louder and more ambient when they tried out the Feels tracks. Then they got more electronic, and the volume turned up, and now they're just absolutely freaking out and they've turned the volume up louder. If you can't appreciate the fact that a band is actually evolving instead of playing the same songs for 10 years like most bands tend to do and veer toward "the hits" for shows like this, then don't spend 100 dollars and then complain about them on a blog. Go listen to "Here Comes the Indian" and shut up.

Not enjoying AC's "performance" on Saturday has nothing to do with whether or not you "get" them. I like AC's albums and was really looking forward to seeing them live, but I was genuinely bored by their set. It was cold, self-indulgent, and filled with "jams" that didn't really go anywhere. The most disappointing band at the festival.

Their set was phenomenal. I was honestly more impressed with them than radiohead and radiohead have been one of my favorite bands for the past while. These guys are doing things with sound that no one else is. All the haters just can't deal with the fact that these guys are more than just a band with amps and guitars. In five years when every trendy "indie" band is just playing with samplers and crazy loops these guys with probably be doing something radical and new that brings on a whole new legion of haters wishing they could just here old songs like "Brother Sport" live.

Posted by Anonymous | August 13, 2008 11:25 AM

they're always a step ahead
it just shows in their live shows too
where most bands play what's on their latest albums
whether they're tired of them or not
but animal collective completely trusts their sounds and you'll barely ever here their "recent" songs for their supporting tour
i mean ppl call it self indulgent
but i think it's just them trusting in their aestethics and playing with the sounds in their head and forming ideas of where to go and seeing what ppl respond and what they respond to best
and then knowing what to put out on their albums
instead of being self concious and working the songs out by themselves they work it out with their audience
which i guess isn't self indulgent at all!

AC was the reason I chose Sat over Friday (live, outside, big festival PA system). They essentially got to "play" radioheads $$$PA system. If you were sitting and listening, you would have noticed the swirls, panning, delays crossing, freq tweaks, introduction/exit of song snippets. They sounded awesome and I agree with the other posters, def one of the frontier bands right now. If you were yapping and bitching about the beer lines, yeah you missed out.

Posted by mewidmer | August 13, 2008 12:04 PM

Yes, all of us plugging our ears over the echos, feedback and noise clearly "missed out."

Idiots who think "the more challenging the band is to listen to, the better" are the same people who think Kings of Leon sound like Creed.

Posted by Anonymous | August 13, 2008 12:37 PM

that's not true
i can appreciate kings of leon and animal collective
whats wrong with doing a little work to enjoy animal collective
altough i think only their noise albums are challenging mostly in here comes the indian
everything else i think has really good melodies that are catchy as hell and easily accessible
like i truly believe that some of you kids have never heard their stuff or haven't heard anything that isn't as accesible as "normal" pop songs to say it's just noise and so weird and crazy
like i could understand telepath or ponytail or gang gang dance
but have y'all listened to animal collectives stuff in the last 4 years? esp strawberry jam
and then the lastest songs can quite possibly "avant" bangers instead of put in the noise category

"Guitar technology underwent significant changes in the 20th century in the move from acoustic to electric instruments. In the first part of the 21st century, the guitar continues to develop through its interaction with digital technologies. Such changes in guitar technology are usually grounded in what we might call the “cultural identity” of the instrument: that is, the various ways that the guitar is used to enact, influence and challenge sociocultural and musical discourses. Often, these different uses of the guitar can be seen to reflect a conflict between the changing concepts of “noise” and “musical sound.”"

love animal collective and everything they do. BUT, i wish they would play more songs that people know. dont get me wrong, i can see "testing" new songs out on the crowd, but when you only play 2-3 songs (if you catch a good set) from previous albums thats just unacceptable. they dont even play Grass anymore and it pisses me off. it is kind of cool to see the new songs being fleshed out and stuff, but at the end of the day im paying money to see them play the songs that i like to hear them play. if they want, do a tour with all new shit and dont even call it a show so this way i dont expect them to play Derek, Grass, Leaf House, Chores, etc. Call it a listening performance or some shit i donno. theyre weird enough, im sure they could think of something.

word 3:15 i can feel you on that
but i think you also have to give animal collective some credit
since their shows are almost two hours normally perhaps the "hits" and oldies that they do play get lost in your mind for the stand outs of new material they do play
i can say on the latest headline shows i saw them at
they played:
grass
chocolate girl
peacebone
leaf house
fireworks
essplode
+ that i can't remember

peacebone
who could win a rabbit
unsolved mysteris
fireworks
leaf house


peacebone
leafhouse
unsolved mysteries
fireworks
essplode
we tigers
derek

doggy
hey light
we tigers
leaf house
who could win a rabbit
sweet road
whaddit i done
loch raven
(i won't count strawberry songs cuz it wasn't quite out yet)

i think they really appeal too putting out the ones that make ppl go bat shit
but then also fleshing out their new songs

AC is not music per se.
You have to go in expecting something different.
I loved the show, enjoyed it more than shitty bar rock most mediocre boring band ever Kings of Leon.
If you go in with an open mind, and just feel the music, it's amazing.

I agree but I'd call it music....

well it is music, but people are closed minded when it comes to music, so if you tell them to think otherwise maybe they will learn know what they like, not just like what they know.

yeah... if AC is too much for people they should listen to merzbow and have their brains fall out of the back of their heads.
