Essentials: “Golden Gal” – Animal Collective

The newest single off of Painting With, Animal Collective‘s “Golden Gal” samples a line of Bea Arthur’s classically sarcastic dialogue from the eponymous television show. A jaunty, sauntering bassline and vocoder countermelodies link with Avery Tare‘s feathery voice as he croons that he wants “to be the reminder that she’s stronger than the both of us.”

Painting With releases Friday, February 19th on Domino Records. Pre-order the physical copy here, and choose from album art featuring Avery Tare, Panda Bear, or Geologist, or snag the digital copy.
