Vinyl love: Of Monsters And Men “My head is an animal”

(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)

Artist: Of Monsters And Men
Album Title: My head is an animal
Year released: 2011 (2012 in North America)
Details: Pink vinyl, 2 x LP, Gatefold

The skinny: The Icelandic indie pop/indie folk sextet scored a smash hit with this, their debut album, mostly on the back of the monstrous single, “Little talks” (see below). Their big sound, based on grand instrumentation and gang vocals, is infectious stuff and album is sold from side to side to side to side.

Standout track: “Little talks”

  1. Back in the day, I used to avoid colored vinyl because someone told me it didn’t have the same quality as the traditional black. I can’t understand why I believed the fool. But as a result, it’s left my collection with little color. As always, beautiful packaging JP.

    1. I’ve heard that the sound quality for picture discs is substandard so I avoid them like the plague but I’ve had no issues with coloured vinyl. This one sounds super sweet.
