It's Been a While

But I'm back, again, to blog it all up, freestyle.

I want to make this a noteworthy post though, so...

The new Animal Collective album, Merriweather Post Pavilion, has leaked, and it's damn good. It's...dancier than earlier Animal Collective, but still obviously an AC record. I agree with what Stereogum had to say about it; it's time to start handicapping year-end Best of 2009 lists.

I had a link to it here for you, but I've been asked to remove it. Sorry guys.

my own Best of 2008 list will be coming soon.
