Eat Your Beaties: Vol. 16

Animal Collective – Acoustic Set for KEXP

Animal Collective’s highly-anticipated, hotly disputed and (in our humble opinions) utterly brilliant Centipede Hz has been out for about a week now and has been met by a large amount of criticism for not being a perfect album.  While Animal Collective aren’t a band that listens much to what people have to say about their music, it seems they are …

Stream: Animal Collective – Transverse Temporal Gyrus LP

You may remember back in 2010 when Animal Collective hosted an extremely avant-garde and psychedelic art exhibit at New York’s Guggenheim museum, now, for Record Store Day 2012, Animal Collective have released the soundtrack to the exhibit.  As expected, Transverse Temporal Gyrus is very abstract and atmospheric.  This isn’t the first time Animal Collective has released something like this, the …
