I’m a little bit backed up on the music news, but I’m playing catch up. Word is that Deakin is officially back in Animal Collective. I couldn’t be happier to hear that. I’m excited to hear his guitars in Animal Collective’s music once again.
When I saw him at CMJ I asked him about his solo material after his set, and he said he should have an EP or something of the like out sometime next year. So there’s that.
Animal Collective will be playing at Barcelona’s San Miguel Primavera Sound Festival and Minehead, England’s All Tomorrow’s Parties next year, and Pitchfork reports that Deakin will be playing with them. Don’t know if we will get any new material from the group just yet. Realistically, we will (hopefully) get Panda Bear’s Tomboy.
