According to MotorMouthMedia, Animal Collective is set to release their Water Curses EP this Spring!
The press-release reads:
“Water Curses sees the band’s capacity for re-imaging their constituent parts into ever more interesting and saturated shapes go up by a giddy notch. All four tracks have a more stripped down feel than their recent work, opener Water Curses takes an unexpected rhythm and throws it up, down and sideways to produce the sound of a smile. A technique that Animal Collective are now in a position to call their own.
Street Flash is nearly seven minutes of spaced out hollers, electronics and lullabies that luxuriate in a chord sequence running through a delay that sounds like it’s made of honey. Threatening to explode but laying back on itself instead the track is like a particularly lucid dream.
Cobwebs is equally languid. Weaving itself around a vocal that sounds like it’s imagining some new kind of space church for Al Green to conduct weddings until it slowly fades away into a sticky ether. The EP’s final track takes the celestial feel into even more blissed-out states. Seal Eyeing is the moment you realize watching vapor trails melt into the sky is not only the most constructive thing you can do, but the only real option that’s left.”
Track listing is as follows:
1. Water Curses
2. Street Flash
4. Seal Eyeing
All tracks were recorded with Scott Colburn at Wavelab Studio (Tucson, AZ), except Seal Eyeing by Nicolas Vernhes.
Hell yeah! We are trying to get an advance copy for review, so we’ll see how that pans out!
