Every band should be so lucky to traverse the kind of path Wales' Super Furry Animals have blazed over the course of the near 15 year career. They first appeared on the Reading Festival's main stage in 1996, have released album after stellar album at an unbelievably steady click (all told, their up to 9 at this point) since that time, and are the beneficiaries of wild packs of devotees the world over. In our latest concert performance, the enigmatic ensemble treat several hundred lucky souls of their NYC contingency to an intimate and lengthy performance at the always spectacular, Highline Ballroom.
Bathed in cool puddles of spectacular light, Super Furry Animals douse their kingdom of fans in beaming rays of day-glo melodies, hazy streams of psychedelic leanings, and the kind of full bodied sing along choruses that get their audience bouncing in impressive waves of over exuberated reveling. Yes, it does seem SFA dial their sometimes beastly behavioral tendencies down a bit for this performance. But it's all in the name of performing the hell out of this "Best Of" kind of set. Clocking in damn near an hour and half, this is an absolute monster of show. Don't worry though. If you get lost, leading man Gruff Rhys has got you covered with his big and bold instructional cue cards. - David Pitz
