Another lovely, moody epic along the lines of Zambri’s “W/ Somebody.” It’s from Zola Jesus’ forthcoming Stridulum EP, and if the rest of the EP is on par with this gem I can’t wait to hear it.

Spooked ya!

UPDATE: Every week, this post tops our list of most read articles, meaning tons of people are getting super excited that we have AC movie info and then let down when it turns out it’s an old April Fool’s joke. Well, how about an olive branch. Last month, Pitchfork interviewed Avey Tare about AC’s upcoming EP and if you scroll to the middle or so of the interview, there’s a big ass chunk of info of the almost-completely-finished Animal Collective movie due out next year! Click here (I promise it’s not fake).

Original April Fool’s Joke Post:

A few weeks ago, my friend sent me a link to an interview Pitchfork had done with Animal Collective. Somewhere in the middle, Avey Tare dropped this interesting tidbit:

“But we are also working on that movie that we talked about the last time we talked. And we’ve been working on the music for that, mostly, and none of that is going to be played live.”

WTFuck?! So I naturally Googled “animal collective movie” and came across this article which mentions a little more about the project, saying the band has been “working on a film or visual album, and have been toiling away on it for about two years.”

Well that certainly whet my loins. Animal Collective are my favorite modern band and have done some amazing things with music. I could only imagine what would happen if they made a movie. Wouldn’t it be amazing if the AC movie went head to head in theaters with the long-rumored Gorillaz movie?!
Suffice it to say, I was ecstatic early this morning when I stumbled upon an interview on SonicPoison‘s website where Geologist announced that filming was complete on the project!!!! Take a bite out of this:

“…and we pleased to say that we’ve finished shooting all the scenes and are currently mixing the soundtrack while the footage goes into post-production. We’re hoping to release it this Fall. As for the title, it’s still up in the air a bit, but we’re leaning towards ‘The Forgotten Zoo’ [laughs]. It’ll make a lot more sense in the context of the film. You should be seeing a trailer on our Collected Animals messageboard within the next month.”

WTFuck?!x2! You can read the full interview here which has (hard to believe) more exciting tidbits than that. Stay tuned for more details on the fuckin’ film of the century!

Just saw this on Pitchfork. The headline pretty much says it all. Oh, plus the band is called Tinted Windows. What else is there to say?

The House That Justice Built by Christian BC

French sextronic, club bangin’ duo Justice has been blowin’ up lately what with all the car commercials and documentaries, but this latest installment in their cultural takeover is an unrivaled feat:

A Justice inspired house in California shaped like their logo.

With carpentry under their belt, these frogs are really taken this Christian-imagery thing to the extreme.

All I know is a house shaped like a cross is something I can really get behind.
