Okay, last AC post for at least the next 24 hours (probably): nyctaper captured a recording of the band's intimate Bowery Ballroom show the other night, calling it "the best unofficial live recording of Animal Collective that you will ever hear." Turns out the vocal sample in the new song they've been playing (which may or may not be tenatively titled "What Would I Want Sky") is taken from the Grateful Dead's "Unbroken Chain."
