Baltimore, Md. is so very rich with quality music right now. Bands like
Beach House, Wye Oak and Animal Collective (AC relocated to NYC, but
some of their first media coverage came from Baltimore City Paper) have established themselves as national-caliber indie acts with large-scale sounds to boot.

There really was no way for Animal Collective to match Merriweather Post Pavilion, widely
considered the best album of 2009. It’s damn near impossible to bottle
lightning twice, especially with the caustic and combustible ingredients
the psych-rock band uses to build its ambitious opuses, in which indie
electronics meet space rock.
