Listen: Two new Animal Collective songs

Pin it

Those spooky, kooky kids in Animal Collective are at it again. Tomorrow sees the release of ODDSAC, an experimental "visual album" that the band made in collaboration with video artist Danny Perez. Like so many of the their projects, ODDSAC defies most OED-sanctioned adjectives; its visual component is largely set in the woods, wherein vampires and other eerie beasts run about. This loose narrative is accompanied by new Animal Collective tracks, two of which you can listen to below.

"Screens," the gentler of the two, is something you might enjoy with a cup of tea and a crossword puzzle. "Mr. Fingers," on the other hand, should not be listened to unless you are in a safe place and surrounded by people you know and trust.
