The Truth About Freak Folk Racism

A few weeks ago, I posted Animal Collective’s latest EP Water Curses on the blog–which by the way, because I’m me, I think is ridiculously good. If you didn’t download it then, then the link is probably dead and you should do it now. Songs about wanting to be like water, loving walks, being goofy–In other words, ideal for the weather we’ve been having lately.

Anyway, to get to my point: Some dude named Andrew Beckerman posted this review of Water Curses nailing the band as racist and fascist and other nasty things like calling the band the “latest manifestation of the concealed bourgeois conception of nature” which is hilarious and probably worth a read if you’re bored like me. That’s all. VIA
