And as I have an emotionally obsessive instable relationship with this band, I’ll join the flock. I’ll keep it concise this time, but you can expect a convoluted two-hundred line review of their forthcoming album (due next september).
So. Animal Collective are streaming two brand new songs on their website from a new 7″ due out in June.
Honeycomb goes “My inner universe lays on three axioms:
1) The King Lion is the best movie ever
2) using bleep-bloop machines is funny
3) my meaningful experiments with peyote back in high school gave me the eternal power to hand-knit unlikely vocal lines”
Gotham goes “I am not a Walt Disney OST, I am a desperate ballad attempting to cover the full spectrum of human feelings. Well, okay, I am not Cuckoo, but still, be compassionate, I am a decent B-side and you’ll get some REAL poignant dark music on the next album”
Surprising Fact :
Contrary to Merriweather Post Pavilion, production is not an utterly painful failure.
You can pre-order the 7″ here. It seems the only way to buy a digital version is to give a 30% margin to the richest company in the world, exploiting people in China and evading billions in taxes. Is it so complicated to set up a Bandcamp ?
