Animal Collective - Honeycomb
Well, it seems like it’s been a minute since Animal Colelctive was on my radar, and that’s kinda sad,……….. buttttt happy, happy! They’re back where they belong, making amazingness like this!
Just after a few listens, I can tell this will probably end up as one of my all time favorites. Love it. Summery. Fresh, with some kind of crazy Afrikan sound going on. Did I mention that I loved it?
Animal Collective are back with a new 7inch single titled ‘Honeycomb / Gotham’ featuring two brand new songs.
The ‘Honeycomb / Gotham’ physical 7inch is available to pre-order now on the Domino Store with instant MP3 gratification of both tracks. Pre-order at http://www.dominorecordco.com/honeycomb.
Bon Iver - Towers
Okay, all you Bon Iver/justin vernon/vinyl lovers, mark January 23rd on your calendars! On this date Vernon will be releasing a 12” of the song Towers with a B-side cover of John Prines “Bruised Orange(Chain of Sorrow”.
Manchester Orchestra - Pensacola
The latest track to surface from the new MO album, Simple Math out May 10th. Supposedly the whole thing has leaked, which really sucks for the artist. I can’t say I don’t pirate music, use the leaks occasionally, etc, and if you do you really should make an effort to buy some merch, go see a show, buy the album as well on vinyl or something like that. Artists really put a lot of time and effort, heart and soul in to making a good record, and they should get something in return eh?

Mayer Hawthorne - Your Easy Lovin’ Ain’t Pleasin’ Nothin’
This video really surprised me. Before this, i think i had heard maybe one MH song.
Picture this, A man, dressed in a suit, sitting in the shade on a summer day, with a record player, and a cocktail, and all the sudden the music starts(crazy, brass, bouncy music) a girl in a bikini runs up and starts shaking her ass and all the sudden there is a party.
Haha i need a day like this in my summer soon.
So apparently, not only is Ryan Adams in the studio working on a new album, but is also planning on releasing some older stuff?
On his facebook page Ryan writes
“Ryan Adams & The Cardinals, “III/IV” Double LP, ( unreleased and in the vault since 2006 ) fresh from the mastering plant! Also day one of demo’s went great!”
“oh yeah, p.s. the “Blackhole” LP ( recorded over Christmas in 2005 ) is also back from the mastering plant. I f’n love this thing. It took 4 years to make it and to me it is basically Love is Hell Part 3… lots of shimmery guitar love on this.”
It looks like Mightier Than Sword Records will be printing Take Off Your Pants And Jacket on vinyl.
“everytime I look for you the sun goes down…”
Such a great album,…..reminds me of summer, which is weird sorta because it is summer. ha. Need to bust this out.
