Well, now I've gone and done it. What's that kernel of wisdom about biting the hand that something something?
Since the Animal Collective album isn't coming out until September, the kind folks at the fantastic Domino Recording Co. asked us to remove our post and take down the linx, which I've decided to do as they have been very supportive of blogs and our going-ons. Nevertheless, I still love piracy and here are two sets of jammers to make my penance. I mean, you're all here for the Animal Collective anyway, so why not keep this window propped open?
Being a good, nay, great Catholic, I understand that one can settle her moral debts to the lord in two fashions (it's all about the binaries for those a-holes): self-flagellation or solemn piety. Let's get to the brutality first.
For some kooky reason, M. Mayer and Jörg Burger left off two of the hottest Speicher melters off their recently-curated Speicher 3 CD release. And that's a damn shame cuz our homies Gui Boratto and Dmitry Gren have both released certifiable skull melters in the past year via Komex. So here you have Boratto in a sinister, insidious mode with "Rising Evil", a track that will have you either grinding up on a strobe light or robbing a liquor store. Speaking of robbing liquor stores, I would suggest utilizing Gren's "Busy Cluster" as your electronic battle weapon as it is like taking a mace to someone's bootie (no insertion here, just gentle paddling).

Now, for you non-DaVinci Code-reading Albino freaks, there is another path towards redemption: total devotion towards the immanent and the emmanent. Your token to salvation can be found in two melancholic 2003 releases by requiem rockers Marsen Jules and Cordouan (heard of The Field, anybody?). These jawns are frozen guitar tones played on a slice of sunshine. Ambient skits for your favorite funerals. Enjoi!
Marsen Jules-Lazy Sunday Funerals 3
Cardouan-When All This Is Over We'll Meet Again
Again, all apologies to A.C., Domino Records, and anyone else who might have been injured through piracy.
