Animal Collective have a new album due out in January called Merriweather Post Pavilion. In old school '90s fashion, their label Domino has decided to release the vinyl 2 weeks early on Jan. 6 with the CD and digital release to follow on Jan. 20. The vinyl will be a sweet 2LP 180-gram set in a gatefold sleeve with full album download included (WAV or MP3). Join us on January 3rd at 3 p.m. for a listening party where we'll be playing the new album in its entirety and taking pre-orders for the vinyl and CD release. Everyone who shows up will get a limited edition Animal Collective poster, those who pre-order will get a download card for a limited "Animal Collective mix" of live tracks. We'll have a grand prize of all Domino label Animal Collective vinyl, including a very rare UK 10" and two limited edition hand screened tour posters. You will have to be present to win the grand prize pack.Avery Tare playing "Purple Bottle" acoustic, for Planet Claire sessions:
