So I downloaded Les Inrocks Podcast vol. 104 and within the podcast was a studio version of Animal Collective’s album closer “Brothersport” off the forthcoming Merriweather Post Pavilion.
Well isn’t this exciting!?
The song sounded great, except is was in the middle of all these less pleasant french radio voices + other songs not played by the AC.
So what did LaCinta do? LaCinta extracted “Brothersport” from the podcast – if it is going to be heard anyways, it might as well be heard without all the annoying podcast surroundings.
Which makes this (below) an unofficial version of the song (it starts and ends a little abruptly, and there’s probably quality loss from the re-recordings), but as far as I know this will give you a very near idea of how “Brothersport” will sound on the album.
MP3: Animal Collective “Brothersport” (Podcast/Bootleg/Studio Version) (Removed by Request)
(Domino Records have kindly asked us to remove the song. No problem, we’re just excited for the new Animal Collective album!)https://lacinta.files.wordpress.com/2008/11/animal-collective-brother-sport-mixtape-rip.mp3..
[You may want to re-tag the MP3 as it didn’t upload with the intended title]
It sounds like Animal Collective and Panda Bear have merged/met at a center point/made a compromise/used AC’s wild beats & sounds + Panda Bear’s harmonies + loops to bring us delightful audio pleasures.
It sounds good.
Merriweather Post Pavilion shall be available early ’09 – hurray for Animal Collective!
