I have more or less stopped posting links to leaked copies of full albums. I don’t know why I do this. I steal all the time and even get things stolen from me. It all kind of comes around and gos around. Maybe it’s just that anything that I’d post here could be easily found elsehwere - as in on a torrent site - so why should I even bother sticking my neck out there with leaked albums.
That being said, I’ve got a couple of good ones today.
The appetizer is the new three song EP of The King of Limbs remixes (download). This one boasts remixes to Feral, Morning Mr. Magpie, and Separator. I don’t feel too bad about this one though as you can just stream it from their website, or embed it into your blog, like I do here:
Good, now that that’s out of the way, I can move on to the main course. You may remember that back in March I posted a link to download the Neon Indian and Flaming Lips collaborative EP. Well the Flamers are back at it, not only did they play a co-headlining quasi-simultaneous show with Weezer last night, but they have laid down tracks with the Rhode Island Wrecking Crew known as Lightning Bolt! I haven’t even listened to it yet, just had to put it out there for the world first (download).
I’m loving all of this collaboration. I’m ready for Alan Palomo (Neon Indian) Chaz Bundik (Toro Y Moi) and Ernest Greene (Washed Out) to just start their own band that could go on tour with a Gold Panda, Star Slinger, Com Truise super group as opener. I mean isn’t that the best part of Animal Collective? The way that it’s all of these distinctive voices coming up together and then splitting apart again like atoms man, blowing up!
Here’s some footage from the show last night with Weezer and Flaming Lips doublin’ down on “She Don’t Use Jelly”
