Quote of the Day (12/30/08)

Alex Denney from The Quietus on the song "Brothersport," which is the last track on Animal Collective's amazing album Merriweather Post Pavillion.

The one that got Grizzly Bear into lumber when they linked to the track on their blog as their favourite AC song since ‘Leaf House’. They’re not far wrong either, stuttering tribal chants giving way to a techno interlude before the band busts out one of its most instantly memorable vocal melodies to date. Expansive and utterly euphoric, it sounds like Ministry Of Sound doing Graceland. But with more of a tropicalia vibe. And sirens. Fuck me, this is brilliant.
And by instantly memorable vocal melodies, he is talking about:
Dear fully grown
you got a real good shot
do well to all the time
keep it real keep it real shut it out
