What are adobe slabs?
who the fuck knows, its Animal Collective.
and they're a type of roof tile. Popular in Portugal, I believe.
That sounds about right, ta! My friend thought it might be something to do with computer photography programmes, but I'm not convinced.
I so thought exactly the same thing. I think I got the lyrics off some shite lyrics website.
Still, even if it is Adobe Slats, and they exist as roof tiles, why would he want them for his girls? Are they roofers? Or do they live in the attic? That is the real question...
the song is about wanting to shun societies norms and avoid a normal life, 'i don't mean to seem like i care about material things, like a social status', but accepting the fact that he needs to make some sacrifices in order to prepare for his family - in context of Animal Collective's history it makes especial sense, as back when they were young and experimenting with everything in life and music and head they made really chaotic music but as they've matured have refined their sound more and more, and now that Panda Bear is married and has a daughter, the track makes perfect sense.
i. A sun-dried, unburned brick of clay and straw.
ii. The clay or soil from which this brick is made.
2. A structure built with this type of brick.
I guess it would be slats, for a roof, as he's already got the walls.
earlier in the song, he says:
Isn't much that I feel I need
a solid soul and the blood I bleed
With a little girl, and by my spouse
I only want a proper house
See, it all makes "sense". Almost
