Animal Collective Unveil Optical Illusion Album Cover

Earlier this month we took at the tracklist for Animal Collective’s next album and noticed some familiar songs. Merriweather Post Pavilion is out 1/20 on Domino but some lucky fans won’t have to wait that long to hear it. Clicking around on the band’s website will pop this invitation to a NYC listening party next week. If you go, tell us about it after. If it’s anything like Merriweather‘s trippy optical illusion album cover, you’re in for a mind-altering experience.

Is it a vase or two faces?!

No, I’m just fucking with you. Here’s the real deal, via

If your mind is playing tricks on you as it should, that album cover should be undulating. I think. I was at a Crystal Stilts concert until 5 AM so I could be seeing things.
