What Animal Collective Sounds Like in a French Shopping Cart

Animal Collective recently popped up on the French blog, Take Away Shows, offering 2 videos for our viewing pleasure. With the band about to begin a Japanese and European tour, and not having played locally since last fall, this might ease your pain for lack of experimental freak out pop.

Not enough? Well the band is rumored to be releasing an EP called Water Curses with all new material sometime in early April. Need more instant gratification? Head on over to for a complete stream of their last show at the 9:30 club.

For those that are unfamiliar with Take Away Shows, please familiarize. These guys film and record quality artists in random parts of France, usually outside amongst unsuspecting people. Some of my favorites include the Menomena one where 2 toddlers are feeling the groove towards the end of the song, and Zach Condon of Beirut taking a stroll while singing and eventually stumbling upon the rest of his band in the depths of a bar. There's like 7363267 other good ones, so check it out.
