Animal Collective are one of those bands that requires repeated listening to really "get". I remember back when I first discovered them I thought they were awful. Just sounded like a bunch of random noise to me. I think it was Strawberry Jam that actually clicked with me after the 5th listen or so. After that, I started exploring the rest of their catalog and began loving all of it. They're now one of my favorites.
So yeah, just keep trying. It'll click for you guys soon enough.
All I can watch right now is Broad City and it's fucking hilarious. Serious Flight of the Conchords/Louie vibes from a couple of UCB alums and produced by Amy Poehler. I'm halfway through the most recent episode and I don't want to watch the rest because I don't want to have to wait for the next one!
I was actually shocked at how much I enjoyed watching that show. I've only seen about 3 episodes, but it's really charming.
It appears that The Bloody Beetroots Live are scheduled to headline Kappa FuturFestival in Italy on July 5, the same day they are scheduled for Sasquatch. I had hoped the poster I saw was a misprint, but a trip to KFF's website shows that they are quite proud of the headliner they just announced. This could be a problem.
I've been trying to get into Cudi lately but I just can't. His music is really uninteresting to me.
Speaking of which, I have a confession. The National bores me. I've tried listening to their records several times but they have just never clicked with me. What is it that I'm missing here? I think they're a good band and all, but there's something that just doesn't hit me when I listen to them.
