Don’t be put off ambient intro w/ nature sounds & ethereal Sigur Ros-esque wailing. It’ll make sense, I swear. But seriously, once the beat drops, you’ll be hooked. Bonus points for using live synth horns and actually pulling it off. This is actually one of the best bands I’ve heard in a long time. I could attempt to describe the sound (Deerhunter + Animal Collective + Fleet Foxes? No, that’s just silly) but you really need to listen for yourself. Oh and despite all their sonic experimentation, literally every song on Laminate Pet Animal has a ridiculously catchy hook.
