Six Degrees of Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavilion

By Mike Powell, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

They Say All Music Guide

While mostly of interest to ethnomusicologists, there’s a lot to be gleaned from this recording, the first from the Peruvian Andean region since the fighting there in the ’80s and ’90s. Sung in the native Quechua language, the disc focuses on the festival cycle, the marking of the animals ceremony, music of the life cycle, and the festival of water — all celebrations that take place during the year, as they have for many years, and often relate to events in the Christian calendar. “Belenes,” for example, happens on January 6, the traditional 12th night of Christmas, while “Chunchos” coincides with the Festival of the Crosses on May 3. Musically, it’s inevitably guitars and local charangos (a small ten-string guitar) that often dominate, with the vocals sometimes eerily high and almost unworldly. It’s certainly not background listening, especially with some tracks, like “Song to Wankar or Tinya,” running less than a minute, being little more than snatches. The quality of the field recordings is excellent and the songs themselves can have a wonderfully lyrical quality. Even if the entire disc isn’t for everyone, almost everybody will find at least something enjoyable — and certainly fascinating — here. – Chris Nickson
