Here Comes the Indian is extremely unconventional and expresses the emotions we don't want normally wish to confront. Seems as if the band was looking to explore some of the darkest emotions the heart can hold and elicit them within this album. It's apprehensive, chaotic, hectic dreadful, and holds so much sorrow... and the sounds are presented in such a feral manner as if the band was actually possessed by animals as their name suggests. Imagine someone that's close to you who's nowhere close to being adept with nature being thrown into the a murky forest that spread fifty acres wide with no phone, water, or light and the fear or doubt of survival that would run through their mind. Here Comes the Indian is just that. The album is unique, there's no doubting that.. but whether or not it reveals qualities in music that are deemed commendable or distasteful is entirely up to the listeners interpretation in the experiences of emotions that elicit abandonment, insanity, and distraught.

Love it. Transitions feel almost aimless, but they really draw the listener in due to their surprising nature. The whole album has a sense of airiness and is really ventilated.. and a bit of it may drag, but the high points are definitely rewarding. Really hazy and drugged, but it feels so innocent. Drawing you in like a trap and keeping you stuck, like limbo or something. Panda Bear's drumming is so formless that it's almost laughable at how great it oddly fits into songs. Reminds me of some hybrid form of Police + Can's drummers. Danse Manatee is strange, but that's exactly what it was designed to experiment with... and it works incredibly. Another White Singer, Essplode, to Meet the Light Child is probably one of their best three run tracks within all their albums. Light Child creates the strangest tempos and song structures, builds climaxes then throws them away (laughs) then ends with a really addicting coda.. one of my favorite songs of all time. Really smart/interesting experimentation with their sound. Paved the way for a lot of what was to come next and was the perfect idea for what to do after Spirit They've Gone.
