How Seven Songs Taught Me to No Longer Hate Music

Animal Collective - "Honeycomb"

The excitement I feel when first listening to a new Animal Collective song is not like when I listen to other bands. I'm going for a ride with no idea what direction they'll take me in. Their music, the sounds they put together, shouldn't work but nearly always do, even when they're spiraling out of control. With "Honeycomb," the madcap scientists of indie rock invade a Dr. Seuss storybook. "All the impossible places you'll go in your life!" Avey repeatedly yelps. It takes a black heart to not get behind that.
