Musical notes:

“Kingdom Rise Kingdom Fall” is a song by the Wailing Souls.  According to their website, “Fusing the harmonies of Motown with the Roots and Dancehall sounds of reggae, The Wailing Souls have ridden the crest of Jamaica’s music for more than four decades.  The Wailing Souls are part of the small surviving group of Reggae and Roots originators still musically active today. The legendary group dates back to the late 1960′s.”

Kingdom Rise Kingdom Fall

Animal Collective is a musical collective orginally from Baltimore.  Their style of music is often referred to as noise pop, although I would describe it as “The Beach Boys floating in a fog with neon lights flashing everywhere” music.  Do you know what I mean?  Anyway, here a video for their song, “My Girls”:
