We don't know a heck of a lot about this kid, other than that he comes from Indiana and calls himself Spirit Spine. But if you're like the rest of the internet and can't stop raving about Animal Collective's latest, you should probably check him out.
Spirit Spine (Joseph Denny) lists as his influences a crazy wide spectrum of artists, from Animal Collective (we told you so!), Beck, The Cars and The Talking Heads to Kraftwerk and Bo Diddley. Hey, we dig it. Sometimes it's low-toned singing over ambient noise, sometimes it's a transfixing beat, but so far it always seems interesting. Spirit Spine's self-titled debut album was released this month with "Trickledown" being one of our favorites tracks.
