Even though you did the work for them, I imagine P4k and Stereogum will neglect to credit you for this find.

25 cents says AC will cut their losses and kick deaks out of the band, because they can make more money without him

It was nice of animal collective to bring their unique combination of weak, boring, and irrelevent sampler sounds to late night television. It helped me doze of for the night.

Samplers are not instruments. They're machines. You play a song on a guitar three times in a row, each time will sound slightly different. You play a song three times on a sampler and it'll sound exactly the same each time.

samplers are instruments. it's called evolution in music.

maybe those who disagree and want to stick with traditional instruments want to ge even further back to when humans were banging sticks and rocks together.

now that's indie!

Did anyone think Animal Collective seemed happier than usual? I'm not use to them smiling that much in 5 minutes.
probably because Norm McDonald was awesome!

Pay no mind to the "samplers aren't instruments" guy, he's still feeling let down ever since he discovered Kraftwerk were just a few guys with computers and not robots from the future.

Seriously guy, sometimes you can hit a sample early or late, so it can sound different each time.

besides guitars are lame.
