Although Animal Collective has been around for years now, they were one of my favorite new discoveries this year with Merriweather Post Pavillion. I recently came across this cover by swedish artist Taken By Trees. Animal Collective's My Girls switches genders and becomes more relaxed in this version called My Boys. A damn good cover I say.
When down and out and faced with only $10 or so dollars to buy a bottle of wine...how do you choose?
Well seeing as most in that price range are similar in quality what better way to experiment than based on the design of the label. Paying no heed to whether it's cabernet or pinot or the age or it's origin, you can come across some pleasant surprises.
One of my roommates surprised me one day with this bottle. I honestly can't remember if it was superior wine or not, I remember it not being bad. I went and bought another bottle of the same kind later.
But could you resist such a whimsical yet simple design?
