Watch: Watch Animal Collective debut new music

Animal Collective hosted a special two-night installation in New Orleans over the weekend, and debuted new music.

The shows took place at the city’s Music Box Village, and saw Avey Tare, Geologist and Deakin take the opportunity to play new material.

The band last released an album in 2016, sharing ‘Painting With’. It was then followed by a companion EP called ‘The Painters’.

All members have also, predictably, been suitably busy. Panda Bear released a new 12” in January, while Avey Tare’s latest solo album ‘Eucalyptus’ came out mid-2017.

Watch clips of the band playing new material below.

Animal Collective - Time Skiffs

For some, this might be too tame. An album full of ‘Bluish’ rather than ‘Fireworks’. But for others, that means it’s the most accessible.
