More Overrated Noise Rock In January!

Please file Animal Collective under "Bands Whose Popularity I Can't Comprehend For The Life Of Me." Fresh off their underwhelming and ultimately eardrum-shattering performance at All Points West festival in August, everyone's favorite indie-noise-something-rock outfit is returning in January with a new album called Merriweather Post Pavillion, according to some clever sleuthing via Stereogum and GvB. It follows '07 LP Strawberry Jam and this year's Water Curses EP, and should more-likely-than-not come out on Domino. I gave up pretending to like this band ages ago (or, August 9, if we're getting particular), but they do claim a pretty significant following, so some kids are probably pretty stoked about this one. I just don't get it. To me, I hear loud exercises in self-indulgence. I'll take the Dodos any day.

Tracklisting for Merriweather Post Pavillion:

1 In The Flowers
2 My Girls
3 Also Frightened
4 Summertime Clothes
5 Daily Routine
6 Bluish
7 Guys Eyes
8 Taste
9 Lion In A Coma
10 No More Runnin
11 Brother Sport

(Please direct all the hate to the comments.)

Ha, The Dodos? Did you hear Sung Tons perhaps instead of MPP?
