Animal Collective kicked off their mostly sold-out U.S. spring tour with Grouper this week, and NPR was in the building for last night's show at the 9:30 Club in D.C. The enterprising kids at Collected Animals have already hooked up an mp3 of a new song (working title: "Bleed") that the group is playing on this tour:

mp3:
animal collective :: bleed (live)
