Strange Music, Part 2

My off-hand remark about Animal Collective yesterday got me to looking some of their stuff up, and I came across this gem of a concert from 2006, arguably AnCo's best performance ever, including a mind-bending 10-minute version of Safer from the Peacebone EP (starting at about the 10-minute mark and following the comment about going down into the Black Hole). This show was performed shortly before the release of Strawberry Jam, probably my favorite AnCo record, and most of the songs performed here had not yet been recorded but were still in the embryonic, working-them-out-in-performance stage, shedding some light on the AnCo creative process.  Enjoy.
