Animal Collective + Danny Perez – ODDSAC (2010)

Don’t buy this – if you get the chance to see it in its proper place, a disused warehouse in Hoxton with lots of drunken people in skintight jeans and fashionable hair, then you’ll enjoy. Hell, I might even manage to enjoy it there. As a new album for Animal Collective, though, it’s frankly a shocking effort.


Cream – Disraeli Gears (1967)

This was Cream’s last coherent album, before the drugs, hate and misguided experimentation produced the intermittently brilliant and baffling Wheels Of Fire; here, Cream run the emotional, dynamic and stylistic gamut, and produced a flat out stunner of a disc.
