It almost has more in common with the freak folk of “Sung Tongs”, another absolutely fantastic album, as the distorted voices collide and crash over one another in a bizarre vocal stew. The overall accessibility of the tribal drums and bouncy effervescent samples are other aspects of “Sung Tongs” that couldn't be more welcome. No one can take simplistic art-pop and paint it in outlandish psychedelia in the same way that Animal Collective can, and “FloriDada” is a testament to this.
It’s hard to pinpoint any one highlight of a track as infectiously catchy and utterly unique as this one. Animal Collective have once again proven themselves to be perhaps one of the most creative bands in music, and while the new album “Painting With” might not set the musical world alight in quite the same way “Merriweather Post Pavilion” did, it’d be unfair to expect that level of genius from them every time they enter the studio. I recommend that you download this song as soon as possible, as it needs to be heard.
