NPR’s Robin Hilton Names Animal Collective One Of The World’s Most Original Bands

Animal Collective

NPR’s now legendary program, All Things Considered, recently asked the question: “Who Is Making Today’s Most Original Music?”  In answering, producer and co-host Robin Hilton suggested that the indie gods of Animal Collective might fit the bill.

After all, of their latest release, Centipede Hz, NME remarked, “It’s chaotic and confounding. It will frustrate as much as it delights. And no, not everything they throw at the wall manages to stick. But my, what a lovely mess they’ve made.”

Get your tickets hear the band’s unique sound live in Madison at the Orpheum Theater on March 17 with Dan Deacon.

Who do you think is making (or has made) the most original music you’ve ever heard?
