Since the release of the live at 930 club box set, I have fallen back in love with Animal Collective. This happens frequently with me. I'll go on a huge kick with them, then more or less not listen to them at all, then rediscover their greatness. So, I figured why not make a thread about them. We can discuss just general thoughts about their albums, or we can get ready for the imminent release of their new album, which by the way, when do you think it's coming? Based on a new website design and the information that they are finished with recording, I'd say it's possible to see the new LP available by the end of the year or early next year. What do you think it will sound like? Also, what's your favorite album? Song? Member? My favorite album is Feels. Song? Banshee Beat. Member - Panda Bear. I just ordered Fall Be Kind (finally!) on vinyl, which I think is a front to back perfect EP. It was out of stock almost everywhere online, so the pricing was a bit high, but I actually ended up finding it on Best Buy's website for like $11. Excited to get my hands on it.
