(31) Days of Good: 12.10.12

Some experimental pop and electro-funk sounds to brighten up your Monday.  First up, this year’s Mercury Prize winners, alt-J, followed by the always impressive and ambitious experimental psych-rock of Animal Collective (back with their ninth studio album).  After that, the energetic indie pop and fusion sounds from the London based quartet, Django Django, along with the infectious party-pop sounds of Anthens, GA, based Reptar.  Last, but certainly not least, the global sounds of dance pop duo, The Very Best, and Brooklyn’s experimental rock trio, Yeasayer.  Enjoy.
