    Friday Oct 20 | Brooklynvegan

    Indie rock's obsession with '60s psychedelic pop dates back to the genre's development in the early '80s, and for a minute in the late '00s, it was the defining sound of indie rock. Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavilion and Strawberry Jam , Panda Bear's Person Pitch , Grizzly Bear's Veckatimest , MGMT's Oracular Spectacular , and Fleet Foxes' self-titled debut were among the most popular, acclaimed, and influential albums in indie at the time, and all of their sounds could be traced back to The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Zombies, Love, and other kaleidoscopic, harmony-laden pop bands of the '60s.

    Before Animal Collective broke out in a huge way thanks to 2009's poppy Merriweather Post Pavillion , they were one of the leaders of the mid-2000s freak folk movement, and they'll be revisiting those days very soon.

    Oct 13, 2017 | Billboard

    Jersey Devil , the latest album from the lo-fi pop project Ducktails , appeared on streaming services September 15. Its release received almost no fanfare, save for a self-promotional tweet from Matt Mondanile, the 32-year-old guitarist who is the Ducktails' founder and sole consistent member, and whose downcast visage appears on Jersey Devil' s cover. While the previous two Ducktails albums were released by Domino Recordings -- the legendary indie label that has been home to artists like Animal Collective , Elliott Smith , and Neutral Milk Hotel -- this one arrived via New Images, a tiny imprint operated by Mondanile himself, which lists an address in his hometown of Ridgewood, New Jersey, on its website .
