STREAM: Animal Collective - Honeycomb/Gotham
Animal Collective’s got a new 7-inch on Domino coming June 26 called Honeycomb/Gotham, which holds two tracks called (duh) “Honeycomb” and “Gotham.” As we’ve come to expect, they’re both sonic Rorschach tests. Though the cool thing here is they manage to capture each end of the band's aural spectrum, whose range swings from rapturous Christmastime-in-a-yurt yelpings to intangible sadsack yowlers where the guitars seem to be committing a long yet honorable psych death. “Honeycomb” is cartoon flip-flop mania, “Gotham,” the sweet, sweet droning crash. Both great, both streaming on the band’s website, both ready for pre-order on iTunes now.
