Merriweather Post Pavilion

How could you not fall in love with an album called Merriweather Post Pavilion? Animal Collective is a band I discovered this afternoon on NPR while waiting in the interminably long carpool line. The child wasn't answering her mobile, gray clouds hanging overhead promised rain & I was beginning to doze off. Then this review by Will Hermes. The New York Times review is here, with an audio link to the track My Girls. You can stream the entire album here at Rhapsody.

I'm sure you know this but Merriweather Post Pavilion is the name of a Shoreline-type music venue in Maryland. Evidently the band has a fondness for the place!

I didn't know that! Thanks so much for the head's up.
