Animal Collective … “Honeycomb”/”Gotham” … 2012
Sound-wise, Animal Collective reaches farther into outer space for inspiration on this masterful EP. The classic psychedelic lyricism is as animal-collective as always, so although this 2-song-EP is “out there,” it maintains a strong tie to the band’s history. “Honeycomb” is exactly as distinctly sweet as promised by its title, and “Gotham” as hopeless and wretched.
Their new album Centipede Hz will impact radio in early September.
