New Animal Collective – “Brother Sport”

When we gave you a live-in-France video clip of “Brother Sport” back in April we called the song “full-on springtime tropicalia,” though it’d been recorded in October. The fact of the matter: The Merriweather Post Pavilion closer’s full-on early winter tropicalia, too. (We know the title’s a Baltimore (and Frank Gehry) reference, but it’s also talking about “merry weather,” no?) All of this in November because when we mentioned album snippets yesterday, like magic, a commenter pointed us in direction of the album version of “Brother Sport.” Turns out it wasn’t an optical illusion.

Grab it at Grizzly Bear’s blog.

And here’s an old, live version:
