Our Dismal Decade: A Highly Subjective Look at the Decade in Musicnew

The decade was imminently forgettable. But with great tribulation comes great art, and music saved my soul. It's no wonder this list is dominated by dour, dark music — as a mirror of emotion, it's practically flawless.

The Polka Dot Lives on for Animal Collectivenew

Animal Collective make music that’s sometimes discordant garage rock, sometimes more like the most unrestrained Beach Boys, sometimes nothing like rock or pop at all. Their albums are a welter of found sounds and instruments, each treated and warped and rolled inside-out until they’re unrecognizable. But there’s beauty and joy and life there, too.

Over five albums, they've developed a strident sonic approach, using noise, sustained tones, short, iterative samples, delirious tribal drumming and sing-to-the-sky harmonies to make points of skewing pop on a slow-burn pyre.

Animal Collective's Cacophony with Pop Melodynew

Strawberry Jam is almost completely devoid of the meandering ambience and tribal caterwauling of the more experimental Here Comes the Indian.
