New Animal Collective – “My Girls”

We’ve heard the Merriweather Post Pavilion version of “Brother Sport.” Now, as the Pavilion leaks, it’s time for “My Girls”‘s shimmering, windblown group harmonies about not needing much: “I don’t mean to seem like I care about / material things like a social status / I just want four walls and adobe slats for my girls.” For now you can hear at icantfly (via You Ain’t No Picasso). We’d listened to a snippet of the track earlier; this time, make sure to keep your ears peeled for the entire thing, because it goes somewhere by simply adding layers (and repetitions) to the vocal round. You may remember that from Coachella. If not, here’s something to jog the memory:

Maybe “My Girls” is the counterpart to Panda’s “Bros.” Right, Carles?

Merriweather Post Pavilion is out 1/20 via Domino.
