FYI our fearless editor Mary is currently on holiday (sort of, she says, since she'll be working on blog-y things for most of it) in Britain and the site won't be as updated as frequently until she returns stateside after the 23rd of May. Don't worry though, we'll be busy this month going to festivals (Liverpool Sound City, the Great Escape) and loads of great content is on its way!

It seems only appropriate that after following this morning’s NSFW, trippy video from Tame Impala that we bring you an even more nonsensical video, this time from those Baltimore brains of Animal Collective. For their track ‘Applesauce’ off their latest album, 2012′s ‘Centipede Hz’, they’ve got flashing coloured lights in the background while a camera provides a close up shot of a woman eating fruit. I’m not sure with all the lip and tongue action if this is supposed to be terribly tantalising to men or what, but I find it horrid. Fruit being defiled! Make your own decision about it by watching the video below.

The new video for Animal Collective‘s ‘Today’s Supernatural’ is a bit strange and might give you motion sickness. Just saying.
Their new album ‘Centipede Hz’ will be released on the 3rd of September. (Oh wait. Centipede? The video makes more sense now…)

Maryland’s Animal Collective have announced a short tour of the UK for November 2012. The mini tour culminates with an appearance at the Warehouse Project in Manchester on the 8th of November (which, come to think of it, is kind of weird…because it’s the Warehouse Project over?). Tickets go on sale soon.

Wednesday 7th November 2012 – Glasgow ABC1

Animal Collective is one of the few bands that make me proud to say I’m a Marylander. They may live in New York City now, but we all know they’re originally from Baltimore. And the name of their latest album, ‘Merriweather Post Pavilion’? That just so happens to be the venue where I saw my first gig.
And here is their latest video for the opening track from ‘Merriweather Post Pavilion’, ‘In the Flowers’. Amusement park rides, crowded New Yawk streets, trippy kids’ drawings, and modern dancers all figure prominently in this promo that goes well with the swirly sounds of the song. Intrigued? Have a watch and see for yourself.

Green Man is an annual music festival which takes place in Glanusk Park, Wales. Spanning across three days (Friday August 21st – Sunday 23rd August), it’s perhaps one of the greatest independent festivals going, and this 2009 looks set to be the best Green Man yet. Taking in everything from indie, to folk, to psych, the top three headliners this year are Animal Collective (Friday), Jarvis Cocker (Saturday) and Wilco (Sunday).
Joining this awesome trio across the weekend include the likes of Bon Ivor, British Sea Power, Errors, Noah and the Whale, Emmy the Great and Stornoway. Plus, on top of all the music, this green-friendly (as you may have guessed) festival will be offering up an exciting selection of art, literature, comedy, film and theatre fun for all the family. To learn more, head over to the festival’s website now.

Things are a bit crazy here at TGTF at the moment – for some reason this week our hits have gone through the roof (so hello if you’re new around these parts!), and we’ve been a tiny bit swamped with emails, so apologies if we’re slow to get back to you / write shiny new posts!
Now, onto the good stuff.
You’ve probably heard that the Isle of Wight festival’s announced its Friday lineup of big bands, with The Prodigy headlining, Basement Jaxx, Pendulum and the Ting Tings all playing the first day of the festival.
Crazy Germans Whitest Boy Alive (pictured top) have a new album, “Rules”, out on 30th March and have given us a preview of it (below). Think a slower Hot Chip, or a more German Royksopp, with some funky late night beats, quite chilled out but at the same time quite groovy… have a listen:
MP3: Whitest Boy Alive – Island
Now for a quick step back in time – Paul Carrack (yeah, the name range a bell for me too…), one time member of Roxy Music, Squeeze, Mike and The Mechanics (ooh, so that’s where we know him from) has a new album out, one of the 60 (yes, sixty!) that he’s featured on. Taken from ‘I Know That Name‘, enjoy a free album track as a download below, or go out and buy current single, ‘I Don’t Want Your Love (I Need Your Love)’.
MP3: Paul Carrack – It Ain’t Easy (To Love Someone)
Favours for Sailors (pictured top right) sound like a crazy mix of the View and the Beachboys – chaotic yet melodic. Woo. There’s a great intro piece over on Drowned in Sound here, and a free MP3 below:
MP3: Favours for Sailors – I Dreamt That I Dreamt that I loved you
I’ve been reading a lot about Animal Collective of late – their new album seems to have the pro bloggers all in a tiz, so I thought I’d see what all the fuss about. Below is a video of “My Girls”, which sounds pretty darned amazing I think.
