Deakin is back in the lineup for the currentÂ Animal Collective tour, which stopped in at Malkin Bowl last night. Deakin, who added guitar and extra percussion, was absent at the band’s previous Vancouver show at the Commodore Ballroom, three years ago.
According to Vancouver writer Alex Hudson, who reviewed the show for Exclaim!: “Animal Collective still don’t offer much in the way of showmanship, and the four-piece said almost nothing between songs other than to compliment the venue and offer a cursory ‘thank you.’ They remained almost motionless at their instruments; the most interesting member to look at was electronics whiz Geologist, and that was only because of the bobbing of his ever-present headlamp.”
The band is on tour for current album Centipede Hz.
