The continued, easy charm of Animal Collective and its core membership is that even after being in the indie-music biz for 17 years, Avey Tare, Geologist and Panda Bear still sound childlike as they roll through flighty electronic lullabies and campfire spook stories.

We kids would stand outside Nat's Luncheonette, at Eighth and Porter, which made the second-best milk shakes in South Philly. Our target was the bank of phone booths. When a phone rang, the next kid up answered it - who had home phones back in the 1950s? We called it "running phonies," for which the standard reward was a nickel.
