Yeah, I’m still obsessed with this song. And I still can’t help but listen to the Cure and think they’re missing sound effects…

M.I.A. – “Paper Planes”

¬†While I’m at it, if you haven’t seen them, Animal Collective has two videos released from Strawberry Jam.

Dave (Avey Tare) posted an update over on the boards updating us on the current battle plan for experimental eccentrics Animal Collective.

Now with the tour over, mixing for an upcoming EP including “Street Flash” and three other Strawberry Jam recordings is currently taking place with a probably release date in spring. Shows are scheduled in Europe, Japan, and of course the ATP Festival in may. Last but not least, recordings for the next album are planned to begin next year. And to answer all of your questions, yes “[they] are trying to record near the beach!”

I’ve gotta admit, when Animal Collective chose “#1” off of Strawberry Jam to play on Conan O’Brien a couple of nights ago, I wasn’t surprised. Once again they’ve managed to live up to their experimental reputation and left the audience wondering what the hell it was that just hit them.
