As if it wasn't enough for 2009 to dominated by Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavilion
, the guys are going to slip in one last reminder that yes, they are the current kings of indie music. Their new EP, Fall Be Kind
, due out in a couple weeks will be home to "Graze" and "What Would I Want? Sky" (which leaked a while back, picking up hype over its Grateful Dead
sampling action). "Graze" starts out slow and a dreamy and turns into a loosely calypso fueled jaunt. Only Animal Collective
can pull off a pan flute solo in the middle of a track and make it sound this cool. - amelia trask
