SINGLE REVIEW: This is going to be quick, easy and painless for you psych rock fans. Actually you may have never heard of them until now but I think you owe yourself this if you’re a Black Angels fan to check this groovy band out. New Animal are from Atlanta, Georgia which is basically two guys Kris Hermstad and Derek Burdette, actually now I think they have fired their drum machine and have a drummer to drag on stage. Which is the only respectable thing to do. What may have started off as a bed room recording experiment is now evolving into this dream like pyche-pop drenched in reverb and delay. I’m always amazed with this genre of music being re-invented by groups like this one. The burning in your ears will be akin to a suicide girls pin-up. They have built dreamscapes from their first release to this recent single. The good thing for you my dears fans is they have a new record in the works. So much to look forward to. So if you are down south check them out live in November playing with Purity Ring on (11/2) and Architecture in Helsinki (11/12). Details on their bookface.
Don’t Think I’ll Make It Through Another MP3 by New Animal the flip side from their Still in Mind single. Get the “A” side.
