On May 28, Animal Collective will release the Monkey Been to Burn Town EP featuring revisions of a pair of Centipede Hz tracks. “Monkey Riches” gets flipped three ways: by worldly psych-pop producer Brian Degraw of Gang Gang Dance, Chicago footwork king Traxman, and New York synth-lovers Teengirl Fantasy. Most excitingly, Shabazz Palaces will rework the swirling, beat-damaged “New Town Burnout.” Domino will release the set in 12-inch vinyl (pre-order here) as well as digital, and Degraw’s version is streaming below. The Gang Gang guru gives the original some room to breathe, yielding the foreground to the vocals and playing with a handful of minimal propulsions while keeping the noise at bay.
As previously announced, the band has rescheduled their nixed tour with Dan Deacon. They’ve now added a date in Portland, Maine. Check the full schedule here and revisit our Animal Collective Centipedia, because it’s awesome.
