Last night Animal Collective debuted 10 new tracks to an unsuspecting crowd at Phoenix Theater in Petaluma, CA. These ten tracks, fortunately all of decent quality, are essentially the first pieces of new material to come from the band since the highly acclaimed Merriweather Post Pavilion and Fall Be Kind in 2009.

I try to refrain from listening to bootlegs of new music, especially Animal Collective, who are notorious for testing new tunes on tour then radically changing them for the official run. With a band like Animal Collective, having a preconceived opinion about their music might be detrimental. However, with an album has widely regarded as Merriweather Post Pavilion, many people already feel the band has nowhere to go but down. These new, not even half-baked tracks can possibly provide some insight on what AnCo have planned for us.

Download: Animal Collective – Petaluma, CA 4/10/11 Bootleg

If we can take anything from these bootlegs, it’s that we can hopefully expect a new Animal Collective album soon. I would be willing to bet on a late 2011 release date.

Oh and nostalgia rang, here is “The Purple Bottle” from Feels.
