Animal Collective was formed by a group of childhood friends. Musician Brian Weitz and David Portner began playing music at the age of fifteen. Some of their early influences include The Curve and Pavement. In high school, they met another music lover, Josh Dibb and soon they formed a band called Automine. Later on, Noah Lennox was also recruited in the team and four of them began to make music on a professional level. A fusion of many genres like electronica, freak folk, neo-psychedelia, art rock, avant-garde and indie rock can be heard in their compositions. According to the band, “they don’t do what’s going on out there, they create what they want people to listen to.” That is what has earned them a great deal of fan following from around the world. Animal Collective has also been compared with many other bands like Can and Silver Apples. Today, the group has sold millions of records and appeared in many major music festivals, television shows and concert tours around the world. Missing out their upcoming live concert is not the smartest thing to do.
With their self-released debut album, Spirit They’re Gone, Spirit They’ve Vanished, Animal Collective caught the attention of many critics and music listeners nationwide. Well-known rating organizations like Pitchfork Media, Allmusic, Tiny Mix Tapes and PopMatters wrote positive reviews about the album. Several critics loved the fact that a variety of instruments have been used in most of the songs. Following the debut record, Animal Collective released a series of studio albums and the sixth one titled, Feels ended up in Pitchfork’s list of Media’s top 200 Albums of the 2000s. The album was very well received by Stylus Magazine, PopMatters, Rolling Stone, The Guardian, Q and Pitchfork Media. Some praised the lyrics, some fell in love with the instrumentations and others just admired the overall music approach. No wonder almost each of these well-known magazines and internet publications gave Feel four out of five stars. Songs like “The Purple Bottle” and “Grass” turned out to be the most prominent ones.
In 2012, Animal Collective came up with their most recent album titled, Centipede Hz. The record produced two smashing hits “Applesauce” and “Today’s Supernatural.” It also took a prominent spot on the US Billboard 200 and performed well in countries like UK, Norway, Sweden, Australia, France and Belgium.
