Prince Rama - Never Forever

There’s a very palpable and strange feeling in the air today. Not sure why or wherefrom. But this new video pushed the bad juju out of my body, and took me deep, deep inside a black whole of color, neh, a mystical “now age opera” mediative slash theoretical art piece directed by Lily X. Wahrman.

Songs from their Top Ten Hits of the End of the World LP, out on Paw Tracks.

here comes the indian is amazing and i feel like its the perfect soundtrack 2 24 hours in a forest with some friends and like idk whenever i listen 2 it all these images pop in to my mind and they’re connected, kind of like the entire album is telling a story lol i feel like its their most contained album and its like one piece and only makes sense and is good when you listen to the whole thing, or at least side 1 (native bell/hey light and infant dressing table/panic) or side 2 because i feel like each side is a day in the story and you can hear day/side 1 or day/side 2 and it would make sense

lets get in2 this thing!!!!!!

ok so native bell at the beginning every1 is entering the forest thats like the start of the day every1s havin fun and running around and stuf and so is hey light and after that they chill out and take a rest (the clapping part) then infant dressing table is like everyones chillin and sittin and theres this weird animal / forest monster and its around them and stalking them but they dont care and they rnt paying attention but then right as panic starts they hear the monster and they freak out!!!!!! holy shit its around us fuxk fuxk fuck that kinda thing and its stalking them and they see t on the shadows and hear its calls like basically avey tares vocal YEEEEEEEAAAAAAHHHOOOOOWAAAYOWAYYYY part thats the animals calls and stuff and idk whats avey tares weird vocal part thats rly processed at the end is but its rly cool but then the monster goes away and its nighttime now…… the monster was stalking them when the sun was setting


side 2!!!!!


2 sails is like its night time everyones sleeping and stuff but its sort of half sleeping half hallucinating???? idk something like that everyones asleep so thats why its the longest song and its sort of the same thing fo like 12 mins ok but then halfway thru it gets louder and stuff so thats when ppl r starting to wake up a tiny lil bit like maybe open eyes for a few secs but not move around or anything or get up or something like that but then the last two mins everybody goes back to sleep for like an hour or so maybe and then………….


slippi!!! wake wake wake up lets have fun the monsters gone it didnt eat us!!!! woohoo!!! ur awoken with a lot of noise and stuff and u got a lot of sleep so now ur up n at em!!!!!! lets get up and party and stuff and all the while the sun is starting 2 rise and theres rly long shadows or whatever and its just so happy and upbeat and stuff woohoo!!!!!!!! and then at 1:53 the sun is totally up and everybodys running around in a circle and chanting along w/ the part and then toward the end they chill out and sit down and stuff and then……


2 soon!!!!! is like eating/making breakfast and theres conversation and everyones happy and reflecting on how great the day was and stuff…. ya so the part at 3:11 and all the parts tgat sound liek it  everybody is laughkng like thats a laughing sound and like the title “too soon” everyone wants to stay longer but they have to leave now and its ~too soon~ lol

peep the teaser for Prince Rama’s new film, “Never Forever”

Campfire Songs by Animal Collective, 2003

‘The album comprises five individual songs played back to back and recorded in one take. Although it was the middle of November and thus very cold, the recording was made outside on a screen porch in Maryland, using three Sony MiniDisc players with Sony ECM-MS907 microphones placed strategically around the band. Ambient sound from the surrounding area was also captured and added later. The album was mixed at Avey Tare’s apartment in Bushwick and later mastered with Nicolas Vernhes at Rare Book Room.’
