wavves' new-ish demo "mickey mouse" reminds me of everything i liked about animal collective.
MICKEY MOUSE --- WAVVES
this sounds like FEELS-era AC (the best era, obviously. in my opinion). guys, i liked animal collective when they were tuneful. i liked them when they played actual instruments. my appreciation of them has faded as they have started playing samplers on glowing tables. and i like lo-fi music when it's tuneful. this song is reasonably tuneful. i like the background "ooh-whoo-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh." it does sound a little like grass or peacebone with the drum machine and background synth. but there is some real personality in it, which is more than can be said for a lot of animal collective's music, i think.
