Animal Collective is in my opinion the latest most innovative band from NY. They keep going deeper into freak folk and psychedelic vocal experimentantion in such a way that every record they release I like better than the predecessor.

Hot Hot Heat/Red Light Sting [Split CD]

A very nice split CD. Containing a great moment for Hot Hot Heat (if you only know them by the disastrous Elevator you must know there was a time when they were good).
The first half has the very best of early Hot Hot Heat onĀ the album Scenes One Through Thirteen. When they were a band of synth punk. Steve Bays was only the keyboardist. No guitars. No dancing songs. It’s a huge punch on your chin. They were creative and genuine.

The second half has a band very unknown and totally overrated. Because The Red Light Sting made a very cool and fancy mix of punk and synth.
The audio production is very good and clean against the rough-demo level of the Hot Hot Heat half.

A must have for anyone who likes punk music with something else. The halfs are very close in their attempt so if you like one you’ll probably love the other. A 10/10 in my punk opinion.
