Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavilion

SO, it's only the 5th day of the new year and I think I may have just heard my favorite album of 09'. It's Animal Collective's new one, Merriweather Post Pavilion. It's really good. Pitchfork gave it a 9.6, that's one of the highest ratings ever. I found a link to it and have been listening to it a bunch. The LP comes out tomorrow, CD later. It leaked though so go find it, or buy it when it comes out. I will probably buy it once it comes out still so I can get it with the best quality. Track 2, "My Girls" kills. The whole thing is interesting too, it is more accessible than their other stuff. Some it sounds like the Beach Boys under water. Gurgggle gurgggle. Here are some videos.

Animal Collective: "Who Could Win A Rabbit" from 2004.

Animal Collective: "Water Curses" from 2008's Water Curses EP.
