Released in 2004, it is one of the key albums from the last decade
Panda Bear and Avey Tare will perform it in its entirety on 19th June in the Apolo (Barcelona) and on 20th June in the Joy Eslava (Madrid)
These are some of the opinions of the musical press about Sung Tongs when it came out in 2004:
“It is a romantic album; romantic in its celebration of innocence and nonsensical shared knowledge, and the sweet, trusted idea that everything will be fine.” (Pitchfork)
“Noise and melody, lyrics and beats, come tumbling out in streams and rivulets, almost as if they're unable to control it.” (Drowned in Sound)
“Rarely has contrived weirdness sounded so utterly bewitching.” (Uncut)
“Animal Collective started strange and arrived at paranormal with this warm and charismatic album.” (Pop Matters)
Not satisfied with being part either of the weird folk that preceded them or of the electronic psychedelia that came later, at the beginning of this century Animal Collective chose to trace their own path. 14 years later, Sung Tongs is not only considered one of the most influential albums of the last decade but as the album that changed the band’s career, preceded by the paradigmatic trio formed by Feels (2005), Strawberry Jam (2007) and Merriweather Post Pavillion (2009) that catapulted them to the top of experimental pop in the new century.
The two protagonists of Sung Tongs, Panda Bear (Noah Lennox) and Avey Tare (David Portner), will play it in its entirety on a tour that will include concerts in the Apolo of Barcelona on the 19th June and in the Joy Eslava in Madrid on 20th June. A golden opportunity, as not even when the album was released, has it been possible to hear it live in its entirety.
TUESDAY 19th JUNE - BARCELONA (APOLO)
WEDNESDAY 20th JUNE - MADRID (JOY ESLAVA)
The tickets for the concerts will go on sale on Friday 23rd March at 10 am at the price of 26€ plus distribution costs at Redtkt and Ticketmaster. Before the general sale there will be pre-sales starting Tuesday 20th March.
We remind you that Panda Bear will also play, solo, on Friday 1st June as part of the Primavera Sound 2018 programme.
