This past week, Animal Collective announced their new EP, Fall Be Kind, will be released on December 8th. Like their past EPs, People and Water Curses, Fall Be Kind is songs that were not finished in time or did not fit in with their latest album, Merriweather Post Pavilion. Track listing and artwork:
2. What Would I Want Sky?
4. On A Highway
5. I Think I Can
The first four songs have been preformed live, but I Think I can has not. These songs sound much more sparse and darker than Merriweather Post Pavilion, and is more comparable to how the Water Curses EP sounded than any of their full lengths. Except for Bleed, which never goes anywhere, the songs do not disappoint — each is what you’d expect from the internet’s favorite band.
