This album was cool and their live gig supporting it was excellent at the time, but it was just before I got into 4/4 dance music (into idm much longer) and I imagine if I listened to it now its maximalist, sample-based repertoire would sound shit. 

 

But I will hold it in a good place by hopefully never hearing it again.

awe I'm disappointed to hear that! When I realized (today lol) that I missed THREE albums of theirs I thought I had a psychadelic weekend ahead of me.

bummed. I'll still give em a go though. :shrug:

don’t get me wrong, there’s some good stuff on Painting With. Especially when it’s new. It just gets monotonous after awhile but I played the shit out of it when I first got it. Def worth exploring. Maybe a i’ll check out that reef album. Im not too keen on AC with no Panda.

I've never been able to really get into AC but Panda's solo stuff is the bee's knees. Can't imagine AC without him tbh.

I've never listened to this album. It kinda feels like I've been intuitively avoiding it since it was released, as pretentious as that sounds.

I enjoyed the first two albums when they came out as a 2xCD thing, as odd lil psychedelic curios. And I have a very nice split 12" on fatcat between Avey Tare and David Grubbs

But when this album was about to drop it felt like either getting on the AC hype train or choosing not to. And I chose the latter. Might listen to it this week.

it's a great album, it deserved all the praise it got. not many albums that try and do this sort of thing actually work but this one definitely did. it also fucking rocks on a good system with nice subs. sports brother sports brother sports brother sports brother

I loved it to bits when it came out, but I haven't listened to it in ages - its easily my favourite animal collective album, haven't liked any of the new stuff as much, but painting with was pretty good I thought

 

I haven't loved any panda bear solo stuff since person pitch - maybe I need to relisten

Great album, but would like this band so much better if they reduced the vocals by like 80%

One of my favorite Avey Tare songs

Another relatively unknown track that I love. Brings me back to tripping on shrooms:

Yes, apparently Domino has been sitting on Buoys since September, so it leaked a month or two after that. I preordered so I don’t feel bad listening to it. It’s quite good, but a departure from Grim Reaper and Homies - a lot more stripped down and mellow. At first I was iffy but I enjoy it more every time I hear it.

Yeah I mean from what I’ve heard, Homies was originally going to be 1 of a trilogy of EPs and then the last two became Buoys. Which means they’ve had it for a long damn while. Poor PeeBz.

Yeah Part of the Math fucking jams, especially now that I managed to grab it on record and I’m not stuck listening to the rip. Came close to my SOTY.

Yeah, it was transcendent. 2014 at Sasquatch Music Festival, I hadn’t ever really given him a chance bc of the AnCo affiliation. When he played Boys Latin I was a convert for life. Probably one of my top 10 concerts of all time.
