No covers just yet, but they will obviously be incredible. Are you perched for COSMIC EXPLORER? I know I am!

Pre-order the 2CD/2CD+DVD/2CD+Blu-ray.

Update (March 10th): The covers are here! Obsess over the symmetry with me, will you? They’re so neat and clean, a definite step up from LEVEL 3.

  1. Thanks for posting this. ^_^ I’ve never heard of them before so I’ve popped on Spotify to give their stuff a listen 🙂 I need more Japanese artist in my collection.

  2. With their 10th album out this month, all four members of Animal Collective sit down with Matthew Schnipper to look back on some of the most memorable songs of their career thus far. 

Go Off, Sis!
