Video: Animal Collective “#1” on Conan

    Always a band to throw live curve balls, for its national television debut, Animal Collective chose not to go with the immediate enjoyability of either “Peacebone” or “Fireworks.” Instead, Animal Collective performed the ethereal “#1” on Conan Friday night (October 5). The band still slays, with Panda Bear’s usual dreamy, Brian Wilson-like vocals and Avey Tare’s singing run through a demonic sounding filter. Also interesting to see Deakin up on stage, as he hasn’t been touring with the band lately.
