Are people really bored with Merriweather Post Pavilion already? It sure likes that way when there are bands of people looking for the post-MPP Animal Collective. What do they sound like? How will they make me feel?

So far, post-MPP Animal Collective is made up of some mediocre remixes and a singular live track, “What Would I Want Sky,” none of which really scream out for my attention the way Merriweather Post Pavilion does. Earlier this week, a fan over at Collected Animals posted up this live recording of a new AC song performed in Washington, DC. This new song, “Bleed,” focuses heavily on ethereal tribal-esque chanting and a vocal battle between Avey Tare and Panda Bear. “Bleed” isn’t anything to get excited over, a b-side at best.

However, I am excited that “Summertime Clothes” is Merriweather Post Pavilion‘s official second single (July 7th) and that AC will release it along with 3 other “Summertime” remixes, oh and some wicked cover art.
