Animal Collective try to announce remix EP and summer tour, but their throats are just too sore!

Hey there, cosmopolitan music fan. You know how Animal Collective have historically followed up their pretty excellent run of LPs with some equally awesome and totally worthwhile EPs that are often comprised of leftover material and new tracks and are just as (if not moreso) interesting and cool than the LP tracks in whose gravity they orbit?

Well, forget that you know that, I guess. Because they’ve just announced the Monkey Been to Burn Town EP, a set of four remixes of the tracks “Monkey Riches” and “New Town Burnout” from last year’s Centipede Hz (TMT Review) (also known in some circles as “the one after Merriweather”) set to be released on 12-inch and digital by Domino on May 18.

Still, you’re a cosmopolitan music fan, so you’ll be glad to know that the EP features such cosmopolitan remix artists as Gang Gang Dance’s Brian Degraw (for your noise/dance needs), Shabazz Palaces (for your hip-hop cred), Teengirl Fantasy (to impress your underground dance friends), and even Traxman (so you can finally use AnCo to get your juke on!). And if you pre-order now over at the Domino store, you get to download the Brian Degraw remix of “Monkey Riches” right the hell now! What are you waiting for? Click those “Buy” buttons and make these monkeys rich!

Oh, shit, I almost forgot! They still seem to be a functioning live band too, so they’re headed out for a North American tour this summer (they added a date or two since we updated you last too, so make sure you get excited about this entire list all over again). Sorry to let you down like that, reader. I guess I just got swept up in all of this worldwide “Animal Collective Announce Remix EP” hysteria.
