Help with a song?

edited January 2010 in Lyrics & Tabs
Hopefully someone on here can help me. I'm by no means an expert of Animal Collective or their songs, for years I've had friends who have been into them but I never got around to really listening to them, but I do greatly enjoy the music. Anyway, I'm rambling. On the way back from the beach one day a month or two ago a friend of mine played an Animal Collective song and I can't remember what it was. I know there was heavy organic bug sounds, which really doesn't help too much, but at the end there was something like "What is this noise?" said and this really intense alien-like... cricket... noise... thing happened that had been - so my friend said - in the song the whole time. I've been trying to find this song forever (okay a couple of months) and I even just went through all the albums I have (which is like.... 8 or 9) and skipped towards the end to see if I could spot it out. Anyone have any ideas? <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/lol.gif" alt=":D" title="lol" /><!-- s:D --> Thanks in advance!


  • why not ask your friend...?
  • is is "street flash" off of the water curses EP? here are the lyrics that make me think this could be the song youre referring to : Electronic translucent bugs. And what's that crawling all around? What's that twitching, is it still alive!? Is it still alive!? Is it still alive!?
  • Did it sound like it was live? Because your description sounds like In The Flowers live at Washington DC 9:30 club. There is for sure a very loud almost annoying (in the good 'ol AC way) cricket sound that Geo hits over and over and over throughought most of the song.
  • Thanks for the replies! I did ask my friend, but we had the iPod on shuffle on the car ride home on Animal Collective and he has no idea what song I'm talking about. <!-- s:roll: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/rolleyes.gif" alt=":roll:" title="rolleyes" /><!-- s:roll: --> <!-- s:xD: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/xD.gif" alt=":xD:" title="xD" /><!-- s:xD: --> I'm trying to get ahold of that song mentioned, hopefully it's the right one and will put my mind at ease! It doesn't sound 100% like what I heard, but I mainly remember the creepy alien cricket thing going on. And no, the song wasn't live at all.
  • sounds to me like "wastered," but not if you're sure about the song not being live. i've only heard it live; it's on the feels bonus cd. <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=" Wastered (Toronto,%20ON"> Wast ... onto,%20ON</a><!-- m -->).mp3
  • Hey, if you still don't know what the song was, have you tried Essplode? Your description of bug noises/crickets is exactly what I hear. Have a listen: [youtube] [youtube] Those are some videos of it live; the new Fireworks/Essplode that they perform doesn't have the same sounds which is why I went for the older videos. Hope this helps!
  • I bet you money that it was loch raven
