Animal Collective 3 Brixton August 2009

Animal Collective Brixton August 2009

Last Thursday we headed to Brixton to see Animal Collective. Playing songs from Merriweather Post Pavillion and older stuff, they mixed one song into another creating a live dance odyssey.

A couple of songs in, My Girls heralded the beginning proper of the light show with the decks, keyboard and mixers lit from below and changing colour like disco lights. Then spots and strobes picked out every sound for the rest of the night and cascaded across the hall. Brother Sport was a perfect end to the set before a couple of songs for the encore. Euphoric. Chef’s Kiss!
