I will admit that I didn’t take an immediate liking to Animal Collective, but going to one of their shows truly is a transcending experience.  It’s hard to put on a good show and a rare thing these days, but these guys are always on top of their game and their music just keeps getting better and better.  I’ve been listening to “My Girls” a lot lately, mostly because the lyrics are just so damn sweet and honest.  And it doesn’t hurt that the video looks like it has a bunch of Doritos flying around, which makes me want to jump around and dance.    This song isn’t new but it always feels new to me, and there’s almost nothing better than revisiting a good song.  Lyrics and video below:

There isn’t much that I feel I need
A solid soul and the blood I bleed
But with a little girl, and by my spouse,
I only want a proper house

I don’t care for fancy things
Or to take part in the freshest wave,
But to provide for mine who ask
I will, with heart, on my father’s grave

I don’t mean to seem like I
Care about material things,
Like a social status,
I just want
Four walls and adobe slats
For my girls
