Dada Trash Collage are the Minneapolis answer to Animal Collective, but luckily they don’t take as long to release material as the notoriously prickly band that they take their sound from. After releasing their excellent Rain War EP late last year, the band is already back with their next LP, titled Neighbors. The first single is the loopy, sunny art pop of “In Season,” which follows up nicely on the shimmering sounds of Rain War. Basically the same rules apply as they did in my review of Rain War, if you are fan of mid to late period Animal Collective, hop on board. If you are from the camp that think the band is over hyped and over exposed, steer clear of this. No matter what you think, it looks like this kid will be sticking around for a while and isn’t afraid of getting his music out there, so pick a side.
