Sonic Youth's... 18,410,336 plays (638,221 listeners)

Do the (weird) math.

I live in a small ass town and every single one of my friends, with a few exceptions, knows who Animal Collective is (not because of me). People I know in Florida with tastes that don't often stray the least bit outside of popular culture... know who Animal Collective is. One town over, there is a college town which apparently is having an Animal Collective listening party tonight. I gurantee almost that whole town knows who Animal Collective is. In this age of last.fm, youtube, myspace, college and satellite radio, and good old fashioned magazine coverage.... LOTS of people know who Animal Collective is (are?). Just saying.

knowing WHO someone is do3es not mean they like them, or buy their albums, or have ever even listened to a song, plus every fucking poser in the world will namedrop the "it"band of the moment.

does not LastFM play, like pandora, anything that their softw3are deems "similar" to what you ahve already enjoyed? the "plays" of AC mean nothing.

no, it "scrobbles" the tracks directly from users' players/ipods... and they have to be correctly tagged or it won't even work properly

I don't mean AC is groundbreaking at all, but for it to be accepted by most people is progressive. The way I see it, there are a lot of bands that would be accepted by pop culture through exposure, but since the public doesn't get much, they think it's "weird"--even relatively tame bands, like AC and Deerhoof. But with more exposure--progress in the context of "pop music"--underground bands with a limited audience can start to get recognized.

You're funny.... even if you often don't know what you're talking about.

shininess would be a plus, but i think the album is pretty decent and i might actually buy it if i see it

Actually, you know, I think they've taken too MANY drugs. Seems like they all
overdosed on ecstasy at some point.
