Animal Collective : New Town Burnout # Shabazz Palaces Remix

Later this month Animal Collective and Domino Record Co. will release Monkey Been To Burntown, an EP of remixes of tracks from their most recent LP Centipede Hz by Gang Gang Dance, Teengirl Fantasy, Traxman and the outfit responsible for Foam Hands’ favourite album of 2011, Shabazz Palaces. Whilst it sucks that Palaceer Lazaro and Tendai Maraire are yet to bring their rolling roadshow with THEEsatisfaction over to the UK for a full tour – and that new music of their own still seems a way off – their epic reimagining of AC’s “New Town Burnout” is pretty great. Plus it gives me an excuse to post the Black Constellation collective’s new short film (Sparkles)…Recollections of the Wraith, which sets some gorgeous visuals to a pair of Shabazz tracks; listen – and watch – below.




About foamhands

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
