Animal Collective - The Purple Bottle (Planet Claire Session)

I saw the Animal Collective a few years ago right after they released Sung Tongs and I was blown away even though I didn't know any of the songs they played, since on tour they play almost exclusively new and unreleased songs. That's what makes hearing this song so great, since it's the first time I've heard a recognizable AC song live. These songs come from a live radio session, but I'm not sure what Planet Claire is. "The Purple Bottle" has just an acoustic guitar and a little piano, but the real emphasis is on the vocals. If you're a fan of the original, you'll love this version, giving you a whole new perspective on the original if not on life. I've also included two other songs from this radio session, including the amazing "I've Got Mine," which may or may not be a new song.
