Animal Collective — 'Banshee Beat'

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.

I remember when this song hit me. I was working at a bar in Columbus, Ohio. Good times.


A commenter at Genius understands the climactic passage to be:

I’d translate this line to something like: “I know it’s really painful when we miscommunicate and get confused about what each other wants. But you need to understand that we are both at fault, and need to work together to figure out how we can both better communicate.”

Which really takes the magic out of it. Never read Genius. Just listen to the damn song.
