Vinyl, Import, 21 Aug 2015
Animal Collective’s ‘Prospect Hummer’ EP, previously only available on CD and digitally, is making its way to vinyl almost exactly ten years since its original release on FatCat. ‘Prospect Hummer’ was the last release to see Animal Collective operating in a largely acoustic singer-songwriter / freak-folk mode, and three of the EP’s four tracks feature the sweet, distinctive vocals of cult singer-songwriter Vashti Bunyan. The idea for this EP germinated during a 2003 tour, which saw Animal Collective (playing as an Avey Tare / Panda Bear duo) supporting Four Tet across the UK. Having long been huge fans of her sole album at that time (the rediscovered 1970 gem, ‘Just Another Diamond Day’), Animal Collective happened to meet Vashti when the tour passed through Edinburgh. Following this meeting, ideas were hatched and conversations began, culminating in the group selecting these three beautiful songs for Vashti to make a home in.

Like the album? Want it on vinyl? Okay, well, you found it. Just add it to your cart or whatever31 May 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
Here's the skinny. If you listen to this level of "deep cut" AnCo you already know how good the album is. For those curious about the vinyl itself, it seems well cut. The packaging is pretty, it comes with a download code, and most importantly, it played nice! Who could ask for more? Just as I expected.

my favorite animal collective album. If you like this, check out a band called Powerdove.
Please buy it.4 July 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
I have been waiting for this record to be rereleased on vinyl for years now, it is a beautiful folk and experimental record that is a must-have. The blended styles of Animal Collective and Vashti Bunyan create a blissfully arranged rainbow of sound. Also I'm high.
