What Would I Want? Sky - Animal Collective

I should be floating, but I’m weighted by thinking.

More from Pitchfork:

"Sky" samples— and takes its title from— Grateful Dead's “Unbroken Chain” (incidentally, the first-ever cleared GD sample). Considering the Dead are probably personae non gratae with a good chunk of the A.C. demographic, the sample comes as a nice band-fan challenge (personally, I’ve never been a big Grateful Dead fan, but my objections are musical, not social). In the original song, the lyric is “Willow sky/ Whoa, I walk and wonder why.” In Animal Collective’s version, the lyric is flipped: The end of the line becomes the beginning, and “Whoa, I walk” is deliberately misheard as “What would I want?” I mention it because it’s what this band has always done for me: take a sound and turn it inside out to make something new, but something recognizable, even familiar.”
