I know it's only Sunday, but I think we've found our song of the week:
Animal Collective member and all-around weirdo Panda Bear has released a new 12" vinyl-only track called "Bro's" (to appear later on Panda Bear's Fat Cat debut, I believe). I know it's totally out of character of me to get caught up in the moment like this, but in my estimation this song can instantly be placed among the best AC-related work to date. "Bro's" sounds like it could be a Beach Boys Christmas song, but with a decidedly otherworldly feel, perhaps recorded in space or at the bottom of the sea.
Here's the "Bro's" edit that appeared on this free Fat Cat Sampler, but you haven't lived until you've heard the full 12 and a half minute version in all its glory. You'll be able to listen to the full version on our SIRIUS show this week, or you could go ahead and buy it here.
