What do you get when you cross Arcade Fire with the Decemberists and Fleet Foxes?
How about the Icelandic indie folk/rock group Of Monsters and Men?
That’s at least the best comparison I could come up with. I had been hearing buzz about this group for a little while, but only recently decided to check them out. After one listen, I have to say I’m impressed. My Head is an Animal is a great album. Musically it’s uplifting and moving, flowing from upbeat to somber throughout the well paced, although long, collection of songs.
It’s a perfect album for a cloudy, drizzly day. And, that just happens to be the kind of day we’re having in LA today.
