"There actually is some brand new material being played on this tour, a three minute gem that goes by the working title "Bleed," written last week, which continues Panda's odyssey of Caribbean gold digging, just back and forth vocal interplay over a bed of washy noise and instrumentation so sparse it's hardly there at all. It's quick -- some I heard from even mistook it for a between-song interlude -- but it again finds them stroking just the right melodic nerve amidst the weirdness. The other new song played was the Grateful Dead-sampling Merriweather outtake "What Would I Want Sky." [Tripwire]
Animal Collective and Grouper played Terminal 5 in NYC last night (5/13). Two nights earlier they played the 9:30 Club in DC, and you can listen to that whole show courtesy of NPR.
