Animal Collective
Tangerine Reef

2018 is the International Year of the Reef, a project which aims to bring attention to the beauty of our friends beneath the waves as well as the massive amount of harm humanity has caused them. To commemorate it Animal Collective will produce their second audiovisual album Tangerine Reef (the fir...view item »

A Day With The Homies

We now have a reason for why Noah Lennox sat out Animal Collective’s Meeting of the Waters EP that came out midway through 2017 - he was finishing off his first solo release since 2015. This limited-edish 12” sees Lennox retreating into the deeper frequencies, combining his trademark ...view item »

Animal Collective
The Painters EP

As is the tradition with Animal Collective, here is an EP companion to their most recent album Painting With, offering a few last chances to hear them working in that mode before they inevitably move on to something different. Four previously unheard tracks, including a cover of a song made famous by Martha &...view item »

Animal Collective
Strawberry Jam

Animal Collective: 'Strawberry Jam' (Domino), seems to take it's cue from the last Panda Bear album, full of vocals to the fore, high melody factor and much more potential for crossover into mainstream radio play. We've been playing this for a few weeks now on promo and by heck it surely does grow and grow to infectious levels. Still, not...view item »

Avey Tare

Oh to be an Animal Collective fan and have this constant stream of music coming at you. Here's the latest solo release from their Avey Tare which is produced by another one from the collective Deakin and is self-described as an electro-acoustic movement through leaves rock and dust made in ...view item »

Following on from their Painting With album last year, Animal Collective reveal the results of a recent trip to Brazil: four new tracks, recorded live in the rainforest by Avey Tare and Geologist and integrating field recordings. Animal Collective on location. Meeti...view item »

Painting With

Animal Collective are back again! What strange areas have they wandered into this time around? The answer seems to be less harsh, but similarly frantic territory to Centipede Hz, though with a particular focus on shorter, faster songs. CD, LP and deluxe LP edition (that last one includes a psychedelic zoetrope-style sli...view item »

Oh hello again Animal Collective. Not seen you in a while (seen plenty of people trying to copy you though)...This single’s a little bit toytown, lots of pings and boinks making a big wonky fairground groove with ...view item »

Animal Collective
Monkey Been To Burn Town EP

Ah, Animal Collective, where did it all go wrong? They started out so positively, with albums like ‘Sung Tongs’ and ‘Merriweather Post Pavilion’ still standing out while many of their contemporaries of the time have fallen by the wayside, but I really struggled with ‘Cen...view item »

Centipede Hz - PROMO POSTER (Pixel Lettering on black background)

Just something as a note, it does not look like the picture, it as, as the description says, pixel letter on a black background, I would compare it to other posters I own (I've got a totally sweet Battles one) but at this price point, it's not that fair. It's the same price as a Peperami, and if I was told I could have a Peperami or an A...view item »

Centipede Hz

First up, I’m pretty much an Animal Collective non believer. Ok, I’m a partial believer. Parts of ‘Merriweather Post Pavillion’ were excellent. Parts of it. But just like a child hepped up on E-numbers you had t...view item »

Animal Collective
Sung Tongs

Clint here with more. First up Animal Collective  - one of the few new bands to lick my ears in a seductive manner and not have me chop their tongue off with a rusty pair of shears. I'm always amazed by their songs  -its kind of nice acoustic stuff slightly chopped up full of crazy noises and m...view item »

Danse Manatee

The Animal Collective are the new wierdo yanks they all want you to like. The general chit chat about this band has seen them linked with the likes of Caroliner and Sun City Girls.

Animal Collective
Merriweather Post Pavilion

One of the Animals discovered that it sounds pretty darned rad if you play two or three Beach Boys songs at once. He told the rest of the Collective and, lo, t’was the birth of Merriweather Post Pavilion, and yea, it did dominate anno 2009 most ruthlessly. Precisely like the little green things on the front cover, the contents of ...view item »

F*ck Dance Let’s Art – Sounds From The New American Underground

This ones a no-brainer. If you have any interest in the current crop of 'east Coast dreamers, schemers, indie refugees and bedroom avant gardists' emerging from the US underground over the past 2/3 years then it's likely that this compilation will interest you. It covers the spectrum of artists dabbling with music technology in the post-Animal C...view item »

Campfire Songs

I'm probably not the best person to review Animal Collective's 2003 album 'Campfire Songs' as I've still not really got to grips with the band. I own last yea'rs crowd pleasing 'Merriweather Post-Pavilion' but I'm not at all familiar with their back catalogue or the epic journey that bought them to my attention in the first place. 'Campfire Songs...view item »

Fall Be Kind

The Animal Collective need no introduction. So I'm not going to give em one. I'm pretty confused by this 'Fall Be Kind' record. It has songs but not as you know them. It's a multi layered opus with undulating rhythms and looped vocals. It has a bit of everything this record. It has MGM musical moments. It has soundscapes. It has sea shanty moments....view item »

The Animal Collective have fucked Fat Cat off and hoofed it over to Domino presumerably for a large slice of some Arctic Franz cash. Who'd blame 'em eh. We all need to eat.... I'm permanently hungry these days as well. You can't knock 'em. So have they changed much? Nah not really. It sounds like they've chucked loads of money at them cos the produ...view item »

Somewhat weirdly Domino have released Brother Sport from the Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavillion with a live B side on a limited 10" months apart from any other release. I can only assume it's cunningly timed to remind you to whack the album into your top 10 list at the end of year being that it was released right at the start of t...view item »

Animal Collective
Summertime Clothes

'Summertime Clothes' is the latest single (or maybe even the first, I'm not even sure if 'My Girls' ever got released) from Animal Collective's super triple diamond hyper selling LP, Merriweather Post Pavilion - still well on course to be one of the albums of the year for me. This track's typical of their recent skewed, wonky pop genius with its br...view item »

Water Curses

Here's the new Animal Collective single we almost didn't get but it's OK cos we did. Panic over like... Anyway 'Water Curses' is their new EP with 4 tracks on. Not any tracks either.... 4 brand new tracks of their mad skew whiff take on pop music. They still make a fantastic racket you'll be pleased to know. The EP is essentially hyperactive pop......view item »

Prospect Hummer

Wibbly folk 1. Animal Collective with Vashti Bunyan. It's strange. Vashti disappears on 1968 into a Scottish caravan only to be exhumed 25 years later by sundry young upstarts in thrall to her rustic sounds. Its odd that Animal Collective have never quite clicked with me despite them having all the ingredients to become my favourite band. I gue...view item »

It's hard to imagine but there was a time when Animal Collective were actual children rather than just pretending to be children.

In The Loop Vol 4

Onto a lush comp 12" on Plug Research which is volume 4 on their superb In The Loop Series.

Who Could Win A Rabbit

Another absolutely great 7" is by the gaffer's fave band of the moment Animal Collective. "Who Could Win A Rabbit" is the sound of a mad hatters folk club tripping out on the best quality peyote & mushrooms available whilst eating a huge sticky toffee cheesecake. Utterly bizarre & intoxicating not to mention virtua...view item »

Here Comes The Indian

Animal Collective. These lot are are about to have something out on Fat Cat.

In fact its more like those madmen of the US und...view item »

Something exciting for me now is this limited Animal Collective 7" which has no information on it whatsoever. It doesn't even say which is side A or Side B.

Grass EP

Brand new Animal Collective single sounds like a bit like Arcade Fire produced by Gibby Haynes according to Brian Clint says it sounds like Lindsay Buckinghams' madder vocal explorations on Fleetwood Mac's Tusk album. Am none the wiser. To me it sounds very much like the Animal Collective. Fun but cra...view item »

Young Prayer

We really liked that Animal Collective album here at the towers. A right eccentric blend of off kilter psychedelic wizardry & twisted folk wonderment it were.
