Last seen in Miami in 2012, Animal Collective is bringing it back to the 305 for a DJ set at Grand Central. It may be a bummer to some that they won’t be playing live, but this is still an incredible opportunity being that their DJ tour is a short one. I anticipate that it’ll be an incredible, psychedelic set. Plus, the intimacy of a small venue like Grand Central promises great views of the stage from almost anywhere, allowing you to be up close and personal with band members Avey Tare and Deakin. I have no doubt that their experimental, unmistakably unique sound will carry onto their DJ set.
It’s never easy to predict how a band who usually performs live will do in a DJ set, but luckily Animal Collective has an impressive track record. They’ve remixed a number of songs, injecting their fresh perspective into jams such as “Love Like A Sunset” by Phoenix. If you want to get a feel for their style, some other sweet mixes by Animal Collective include “Little Bird” by Goldfrapp (Animal Collective Remix) and “Mirando” by Ratatat (Animal Collective Remix).
