Animal Collective members Avey Tare and Geologist took a trip to the Brazil early last year, and they ended up recording a live EP in the middle of a rainforest. Meeting Of The Waters was released in physical form on Record Store Day, but it just hit streaming services, so now you can stream the whole thing below.
We’re very psyched for our new record Meeting of the Waters which will be out on record store day (april 22nd). It was an incredible experience to be able to collect sounds and make music in a rainforest. Its absolutely crucial for the survival of our planet that we don’t lose these habitats and environments. By supporting this release you’ll be helping out a good cause (more info in our bio). You’ll also be helping a local record store which is another crucial creative environment that deserves to be supported. Thank you all for listening!!! Our Song Man of Oil will be played on the NTS radio show “Play it as it Lathes” on 4/21 at 2 pm PT. Tune in for that and other awesome tunes. The track listing can also be found in our bio. Peace.
Meeting Of The Waters is out now. A portion of the proceeds earned from the EP will go to IDESAM (Instituto de Conservação e Desenvolvimento Sustentável do Amazonas), a non-profit NGO dedicated to the conservation of the Amazon region.
