Listen To Some New Animal Collective

CLICK HERE to get taken to hype machine, where you can stream two new tracks from Animal Collective's forthcoming Merriweather Post Pavillion. I heard the studio version of "Brothersport" a month or so back, and it's great. "Daily Routine" is just as great, and follows the "tropicalia-trance" formula that seems to be the theme for this album. But the real standout of the trio of tracks is "My Girls," a very sweet song in which Panda Bear/Noah Lennox sings of his only desire: to be able to provide for his wife and daughter ("I don't mean to seem like I care about material things...I just want four walls and adobe slabs for my girls...I only want a proper house"). Awww....<3 you indie-rock dads.
