“My Girls” “Peacebone”
By now, I suspect that most people have heard about all the drama surrounding the internet vs. Animal Collective’s new album, Merriweather Post Pavilion (released on vinyl today), so if you haven’t heard this track yet, I recommend listening to it as soon as possible.
Reviews of this album have started to trickle in, and to call them superlative would not be an understatement. I’m usually suspicious of reviews this high, but I have to admit, this album is excellent. More subtle and accessible than their previous efforts, expect to see Merriweather Post Pavilion high on the year-end best of lists (yes, it really is that good).
“My Girls”, with it’s Beach-Boys-on-acid harmonies and synth-drenched hand claps, is the first single from the album, which sees a CD/digital release on Jan. 20th courtesy of Domino Records.
Update: Apparently “My Girls” is still off-limits. We’ve been asked to take the song down; so we’re replacing it with “Peacebone”, the lead-off track from AC’s previous full-length album, Strawberry Jam.
