It turns out we are not the only ones who are in love with Animal Collective's new album Merriweather Post Pavilion. Fleet Foxes, who many have hailed as one of the best bands of 2008, have written some interesting things about the new Animal Collective album on their Myspace blog. It isn't clear which member of the band wrote the post but whoever it is goes on to shower Animal Collective with praise, saying:

"What a beautiful thing. This record makes me want to cry. Seriously special human beings... sigh. I saw Noah Lennox (Panda Bear) backstage at the Pitchfork festival and could hardly contain myself, like meeting Elvis. I bumbled a couple dumb words and cursed myself for looking like a Black Crowes monster."

The blog post then goes on to praise other independent artists who have made their mark, such as Bon Iver, Grizzly Bear, Department of Eagles and Joanna Newsom. The post ends with some insightful words about music as a form of communication:

"I can listen to Bob Dylan sing "Buckets of Rain" and feel like I know Bob as a person better in a way I couldn't ever get from a conversation with the guy. I feel like Dan Rossen of Grizzly Bear's guitar playing is a weird window into his soul, it's so unique and expressive (probably wrong about this but that's just the feeling it gives me). Every choice made on Merriweather Post Pavilion is an insight into that band. It's like a weird avenue of really refined personal communication that you could never achieve with just words."

And finally:

"I love MPP."

Well, we are definitely with you on that one.
