Animal Collective 7″ and Interactive Website
Like the Flaming Lips, Animal Collective could mellow out and still have some pretty strong weirdo-outside street cred. Like the Flaming Lips, they seem interested in coasting every once and while, but mostly it seems like the weird DNA runs both deep and wide within the group. The latest surprises from the band were the record store day release Transverse Temporal Gyrus (say that three times fast), which wasn’t unique enough, so the group created an interactive website to help you trip out even harder. See/experience the whole shebang HERE. In a more suprising than weird devlopement, the band recently dropped a 7″ that apparently is setting up a soon to be birthed LP. Listen to both side of the record below and see which strange direction the group are venturing down now. No firm details on the record yet, but look for lots more in the near future.
