Disco Volante - Brother Sport
MP3: Disco Volante – Brother Sport (Right-Click-Save-As)
The best live show I saw last summer, hands down, was Animal Collective at Prospect Park in Brooklyn. It was a steamy, tropical affair, a strange confluence of perfect weather and set design as late afternoon showers subsided just as the band took to a stage decorated like the Hawaiian Tiki stage of Super Mario Bros., complete with candy colored Easter Island heads, swaying cardboard cut-out waves and even a giant cartoon shark that leaped from the “water” and dove back in over and again like a star Sea World performer. As the sun set, we noticed tiny pink paper lanterns glowing on wires above our heads. I smoked a joint with some hippie kids.
The irresistible Brother Sport (fantastic video!), this week's title track, was arguably the highlight of the show, with its childlike faux-tribal chanting and hypnotizing electric bounce that had us bobbing up and down like idiots. Here's hoping this summer brings similar delights!
