DJ Geologist @ AMNH on January 8th (more by Tim Griffin)
Animal Collective

Animal Collective and frequent collaborator Danny Perez created a very colorful movie that entirely lacks a plot, but is a series of musical and visual motifs to make a whole. It kick-starts with what seems to be headlights on tall grass, and that's as explicable and transparent as "ODDSAC" gets.

It clocks in 53 minutes and boasts all-new compositions from the Brooklyn-based noise-crafters unlike anything we've heard from them before. These generally are not complete songs, but moods and, at times, predictably, purposefully grating rhythms and riffs. [Hitfix]

ODDSAC, "A Visual Album by Danny Perez and Animal Collective," premiered at Sundance on Tuesday (1/26) - it plays there all week, and has scheduled screenings in NYC and Chicago this March.

There will be two Tuesday, March 2nd showings (6:30pm, 8:30pm) at NY's Visual Arts Theatre (333 West 23rd St). Tickets for 6:30pm and tickets for 8:30pm are both on sale. Director Danny Perez and members of Animal Collective will be in attendence.

If Panda Bear is one of the members attending, he'll have to work it around his European tour dates, which are mainly in March with scattered other overseas days that include ATP UK on May 7th and Barcelona's Primavera Fest on May 27th.

No real lyrics, lo-fi production, repetitive. Not my thing.

Hey if you enjoy it more power to ya. I don't go by what the press thinks is a great record. I didn't like Battles record either..

Once again, I never understood the Person Pitch record being that good. MPP is so much more rounded and stronger. Even SJ is better than PP to me. Person Pitch just gets monotonous a LOT.

I dig Person Pitch alot, but Merriweather kills it in my book as a complete album

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2010 11:17 AM

haha was it dissapointing cuz he didnt have legit dj gear or what? i totally feel you that there are great djs and not so great ones, but his being on a laptop shouldnt have much to do with it

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2010 11:19 AM

What happens when his computer freeze or he gets a pop up add?

"Hmmmm, which obsure song noone has heard of can I put on next.."

What a clown.

regardless, both screenings are going to sell out and there will be a craigslist frenzy the day before

i like person pitch but personally think MPP and SJ are significantly better.

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2010 12:37 PM

anything they've done visually is pretty cliche

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2010 1:18 PM

Guys, person pitch isn't an animal collective album. It's a panda bear solo album. Of course it's not going to sound as complex and layered as MPP or as loud as SJ. It's still fairly good and i'm sure just as much hard work went into it as their collaborative efforts.

He sort of went with the whole washed out/surfer jam/looped vibe and created a wonderful album much before your chillwave acts came rolling through. Also, watch out for his next album coming out. It's going to be another wonderful collection of melodies and sounds.

They are true to themselves, are they not? They do what they do because they love doing it.

I bought a pair. Thanks for the heads up, BV!

By the way, I emailed the SVA Theatre earlier this morning, and a representative wrote back to say there is no regular box office. Tickets are only available online.

Regardless of what you people think, ODDSAC is an absolutely amazing movie.

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2010 2:48 PM

The 'DJ' in the picture is simply pressing play on itunes. If he dropped dead, the show would sound the same. What a charlatan.

Oh, and what about those question marks on Sunday's text in the concert poster below? No, that isn't saving a spot for a Smiths reunion or U2 debut on the Coachella stage, it's the way that Yorke presents himself as a solo star, the marquee at his Orpheum concert had the same punctuational flourish.

I'm seeking other bloggers who'd like to share their take of the world as they see it. Shoot me an email if you'd like to guest post, or be a part of my collective thought project.

I believe that a lot of individual right now are enjoying this kind of music. I like the bright colors but the video looks scary especially the latter part. Maybe I just can relate to it. Sorry guys...
