If you’ve been keeping up with Animal Collective and their creative envelop pushing sound since the beginning of Panda Bear (Noah Lennox) and Avey Tare (David Portner) debut Spirit They’re Gone, Spirit They’ve Vanish, then you were like me and many other AnCo fans alike, not entirely sure what to expect from their next project as a whole.

Interview: IGLOOGHOST

IGLOOGHOST is a name that has stuck out to me ever since I heard it towards the end of 2015. Late last year I came across a really colourful and vivid EP entitled “Chinese Nü Year” that was produced by the new eccentric Brainfeeder label signee. I had no prior knowledge of any of his work before listening to the EP and had no expectations heading into the project. Needless to say I was absolutely stunned by the material that I was hearing so I decided to delve deeper into the artist’s past work. After digging up all his releases that I was able to find, I shot a message to the UK producer to see if he would like to elaborate more about his music. We talked about what he is currently up to since being signed with the new label and what plans he has in store for the upcoming year!
