“Leaf House” [Animal Collective cover]

Covering “Leaf House,” the highly singular first track off Animal Collective’s Sung Tongs, is a terrible idea — unless you’re a rapper named Busdriver (who, by the way, just released an album as Flash Bang Grenada called 10 Haters and is also in a punk band called Physical Forms with ex-Mae Shi member Jeff Byron). The digital single for his cover of “Leaf House,” b/w a new track with Flying Lotus called “Ladyplace,” is out now. Stream the Animal Collective cover above and check out “Ladyplace” here. Both tracks will raise your cultural capital.
