Holy shit. If you're an Animal Collective fan, I've got the most ridiculous rabbit hole to share with you. Spin essentially created an encyclopedia of the band's influences. This is going to make my sleuthing missions to identify the thousands of mangled samples in their jams so much easier/more fun.
Remember that "Rub a Dub Dub" song Burrito was obsessed with a few months ago by The Equals? It's sampled in Panda Bear's track "Bros". Panda wrote that song just after he told the band he was moving to Portugal, where his lady (now wife) lives. The band was pretty pissed at him and weren't sure if they were going to have to break up or what. The song is somewhat of an apology for bailing on them (he broke that coveted Bros before Hoes code) but as in all AnCo jams, the lyrics aren't super literal. The part of the "Rub a Dub Dub" song Panda sampled is just a riff, but if you listen to the original song you will notice that the corresponding lyrics of the sampled riff are "Got to see my baby".
Essentially it's like a hidden little message all throughout the song, looping over and over again "Got to see my baby, got to see my baby, got to see my baby". I think that shit is super cool. The encyclopedia should help uncover more mysteries, let me know if you stumble across anything intriguing.

With the news that Caribou has a new album and IS NOT touring in the Pacific Northwest, I think I HAVE to go to FYF now. Which means I have to sell my Pemberton ticket :-(. Double Snaith just can't be missed. I am le sad to miss out on this Canadian adventure.
I think I may have a tough time selling my ticket from Seattle, so if any of you are trying to convince your friends to go or know someone who is looking for a ticket, I will sell it to them for $50 under face value. I think in total my tickets came out to $425-430.
