mp3: Animal Eyes – Bender

Animal Eyes are an indie-rock group that remind me of the indie-rock groups that taught me what indie rock was: Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear, Dirty Projectors.  Everyone has their golden-age of music I guess and I probably won’t ever have another year of wide-eyed music discovery like I did in 2008.  Like A Beacon School, Animal Eyes make intricate, multi-layered music that some people might describe as “smart” or maybe even “pretentious” but fuck it they seem like they’re having a fun time making it and I’m having a good time listening.  I don’t know if Animal Eyes listens to or is trying in any way to emulate any of the groups I’ve mentioned in this article, but they’re reminding me of why I fell in love with indie-rock and that’s cool.
