On Repeat: "Honeycomb"

While critically praised and a relative commercial hit, Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavilion, released in 2009, had its detractors, due to both the poppier sound presented and being their most accessible release. I'll be honest, I loved that album, but the band promised early on the press for the follow-up that they would not be aiming for the same sound.

"Honeycomb" is the first song released for the album and they seem to be telling the truth when they say that the album will be less "pop." Although I came in at Merriweather Post Pavilion and it has been my most-loved album by the band, I'm loving this track and greatly looking forward to Centipede Hz in September.
