Animal Collective Drops Vinyl Early + CD Release Party Dates

Ha! We saved you the trippy optical illusion. Set to release their ninth full-length, Merriweather Post Pavilion, Animal Collective will do so on vinyl, before compact (vinyl release date, Jan. 6 on Domino.) The record will come equipped with a digital download card as well. In a society that is becoming all the more cyclical in nature exemplified through the current financial crisis, war-laden developing countries, or just high pants, suspenders and nice fedoras, Vinyl is next to reemerge. Plus, it sounds better right? The jury is still out. Anyway, less tangential rambling and more listening/release party dates for Merriweather after the jump...
