Electric Fetus and Radio K to Host Animal Collective Listening Party
Taken directly from the Electric Fetus website:
When: Tues., Jan. 6th
Where: The Minneapolis Electric Fetus
The Electric Fetus and Radio K are having a listening party for the new Animal Collective album, Merriweather Post Pavilion. The double, gatefold vinyl LP (180 gram) version of the album will be available for sale for the first time that day. The LP includes a full album download card in both wav and mp3 formats inside. The Fetus will also be taking pre-orders for the CD version which comes out Jan. 20th. Customers that pre-order the CD or buy the LP that day will receive a download card with an "Animal Collective Mix" of live tracks.
Ya'll internet freaks probably know that Animal Collective's latest has leaked--on Christmas Day, to boot--but that this also is an event to definitely attend. I've only heard it once all the way through (don't get nervous, I plan on purchasing this beast on vinyl), but this is my most basic reaction: While Merriweather is an excellent listen, it definitely comes off as Strawberry Jam 2: The Strawberrying. That said, do I have any complaints? Nope.
