Animal Collective posted a couple of new jams earlier tonight that will be released on a forthcoming single, the knotty “Honeycomb” as well as its B-side “Gotham.” Listen below:
The single is out 6/27 on Domino.
Production is absolutely amazing!
I really really really like Honey. Animal Collective never ceases to amaze me.
Goosebumps, every time
Another important fact: If you preorder the single, you will receive an mp3 version immediately.
Also, the artwork on the vinyl makes me very happy that I am getting a record player this week.
Make sure you get a 45 adapter this week, too.
I didn’t get any this weekend, but that’ll do pig. That’ll do…
Also, is it not kind silly how every website has posted these songs without really giving them the justice they deserve with the write-up? I mean, c’mon, I know it’s Sunday night, but considering the entire blogosphere had a wet dream over Merriweather Post Pavillion in ’09 and AnCo is one of the most anticipated new releases of the year, would it kill everyone to just write more than a sentence or two about this awesome “surprise”? Chris Weingarten, I feel ya…
AnCo’s Honeycomb > Post’s Honeycomb.
It’s nice to see that Animal Collective is as excited for the Dark Knight Rises as I am.
Don’t like it too much people. Rubber Johnny will be compelled to immediately say something bad about it if you do. He’s in the parlor right now getting his hair treated. He’s not supposed to move. Be kind.
I like them, could see myself becoming pretty addicted to Honeycomb. They didn’t hit me with the immediacy of some of the tracks from MPP, but still pretty nice.

like nails on a chalkboard. Basically only like Noah’s voice.
I’m surprised it took Pitchfork close to 18 hours to give it Best New Track. Seriously though it’s pretty awesome
AnCo gonna get the first 11BNM
pretty good to my ear. i like this music and band.
I swear to god some of those lyrics were in Spanish!!
I just honeycomb’d in my pants
This sounds just like that other song they made that nobody actually liked but everybody pretended to…
I think a lot of blogs haven’t done much of a writeup because there’s been no information from the band about whether its going to be part of their upcoming album, so there is no context to place it in. People are probably waiting for more information from the AnCo camp before they give it a larger writeup
Wow, “Gotham” is gorgeous. Harkens back to “Penny Dreadfuls” in its meandering, melancholy way.
seriously though, Honeycomb kinda sounds like bad Primus. And Primus kind of suck. DOWNVOTE!
yeah Primus sucks
