Artist: Animal Collective
Song: “Purple Bottle”
Animal Collective is starting to making the blog rounds again, with both the release of two new tracks, and the announcement of a new album coming out this September. After the wildly successful “Merriweather Post Pavilion,” the band took a few years off, as both Avey Tare and Noah Lennox worked on solo albums, and the band recovered from the massive tour schedule that coincided with the album release.
A few years before the band’s successful rise with “Post Pavilion,” Animal Collective released “Feels,” a more acoustically driven album that pushed things forward from the almost exclusively acoustic “Sung Tongs.” “Purple Bottle,” featured below, now comes across as almost a bridge from the older band’s style to their newer, more electronic-infused material. Check it out below, and let us know what you think. Are you excited for the new Animal Collective album this year? Why or why not? Tell us in the comments!
