    I should probably get into Animal Collective. Despite STGSTV being my favorite album, I've genuinely only heard it and MPP (plus select tracks from Strawberry Jam and a couple solo albums from the boys.)
    Maybe I'll buy the new Feels reissue :cautious:

    Feels is still my overall favorite. Can't go wrong there. But I'd also suggest listening to Strawberry Jam in full, then Sung Tongs. Those three records right there should very well introduce you to their best material. Then since you know MPP, you can just go forward from there because at that point things get much more electronic and busy and weird.

    This, and definitely give their EP Fall Be Kind a listen too. It’s quite excellent

    I’m deep in an AC hole and I don’t want to get out.

    Tonight I worked out and listening to some stuff by them. Turns out Brothersport totally rules in this context. Floridada does not.

    Sometimes I really like Centipede Hz. It needed some time to grow I think.

    Anyway, one of the most underrated/under-appreciated songs on the LP, and in all of AC's catalog is "Mercury Man." I had written it off for so long, but now I love it.

    Also found this amazing cover of it:

    I love working out to Floridada! Well, running, specifically. And I don't mean to say I love running. Because I do not; running is awful. But if I have to run, I love listening to Floridada while I do.

    I like to listen to intense chase scene and horror film score stuff when I run at night
