Fun fact: If you conduct a google image search for this album, the first suggestion the site offers is the Arcade Fire's Neon Bible. I'm not sure what that album has to do with this one. It rules. This is the fourth AnCo album that this writer has ever purchased, which is kind of a big deal in the sense that yet another band has reached the level where they receive the sort of commitment that garners several purchases. No big words on it yet, but it has been dominating the weekend playlist. The interntets say that the whole album was done solely by Avery Tare and Panda Bear. That's a little different, and there is a slightly more intimate vibe to this affair as compared to other albums. This record may also be the last album physically purchased by this writer, at least until a new record store is found. Record and Tape Traders has fallen woefully behind in the sense that they don't stock many relevant albums. Their staff is also comprised of old dudes who used to have real jobs but because of the recession are now working at the record store. This really prevents the customer from getting any help from the people that work there. Thought-provoking commentary will come in the future, just not right now.
