Animal Collaborations

Ratatat are a band I didn't even realise I'd heard anything by until just a few days ago. I stumbled upon what I can only describe as their wigged out electronic Hip House sound through a remix by the mighty Animal Collective. Upon viewing their myspace page I actually found I recognised one of their tracks, 'Wildcat'. It was a case of "hmmm where have I heard this before?"

The Animal Collective remix of their latest single 'Mirando' can only be described as 10 mins of glitched-up wonky ambient electronica that just takes you to another dimention with its blissful aural soundscapes. You have to hear it to understand what I'm trying to describe here.

Continuing with the Animal collaborations theme, the whole blogging world went nuts when news broke of the new single from Atlas Sound, the solo project from Bradford Cox of Deerhunter and Noah Lennox aka Panda Bear from Animal Collective.

Considering these have been my favourite two bands of this year, to which my friends will no doubt attest to given me banging on about them at every opportunity, this collaboration seemed very special indeed. And I wasn't disappointed. 'Walkabout' is every bit uplifting as any Panda Bear/Animal Collective record and also has elements of Deerhunter's finest moments.

A summer record to savour indeed.

I think this is what people want to listen, for example I'm sick listening the same music, and this one is perfect because is hip hop, electronic, and house music.
