Hey brother, can you sport me a new song? Animal Collective are set to release a 10" single of the song "Brothersport" on November 9th, the third single taken from their Merriweather Post Pavilion album. The single will feature a b-side of the new song Bleeding as it was performed live in Big Sur.
But there's so much more going on. There's also a new EP coming out, titled Fall Be Kind. It's going to include five new songs, operating along the same weather-oriented and seasonal influence that the band has been working in this year. In addition to the obvious reference in the title of the EP, the music will mostly be darker in tone than the Merriweather Post Pavilion songs, in reference to the darker vibe of the Fall season. They're you're musical wallpaper band! Environmental sound control for your seasonal satisfaction. We are truly living in an experience-oriented world.
"The vibe is a little bit darker, I'd say-- not in terms of the sound, maybe. Well, the melodies are definitely darker. It's not abrasive dark or anything, but I think the mood of it has just a little bit more of a nighttime, kind of dark, sad vibe, even though I think "What Would I Want? Sky" is a little bit more positive or upbeat," said Dave Portner when speaking to Pitchfork about the new release.
And the Animal Collective film! The long rumored, much anticipated film is happening and is soon to see the light of day. They've been working with Danny Perez on an Animal Collective movie (of sorts). The band shot a number scenes three years ago with Perez, including scenes in a castle and an undisclosed location in Pennsylvania
"After three years, we're all pretty much ready to be done with it. We watched it straight through twice now in a projected theater situation, and we're all really psyched on it. Hopefully, it'll be done sometime next year," Portner said.
