Animal Collective Clear the First Legal Grateful Dead Sample
A while ago Prefix posted a bootleg of the very excellent unreleased "Animal Collective" track"What Would I Want Sky," and it turns out now that Animal Collective have cleared the first legal Grateful Dead sample for use in that track. The Grateful Dead track is "Unbroken Chain,"and the fact that they bothered to properly license it implies that the group plans on releasing the song sometime in the future.
Dave "Avey Tare" Portner told the Onion's A.V. Club that they might put it on a a "Brother Sport" EP, towards the end of the year, which means that "What Would I Want Sky isn't the only new AC fans would get. Neat, right?

The feature show for this week's Shakedown Stream contained a Let It Grow coming out of Terrapin Station in the 2nd set that is amazing (one of the best I have heard). The boys jam the tune for well over 20 minutes before going into drumz.

Subject: Hello from Mongolia
Date: Thu, 2 Jul 2009
Hi Jer Bear,
I'm a fairly new listener to the podcast and love seeing the little blue dot next to the Shakedown Stream podcast on my itunes letting me know there's a new one. I'm a little behind and was just listening to the Lake Placid show you featured last month, was a great, kick-ass show. On that and subsequent podcasts I heard you mention you have listeners in the UK, Ireland and on the continent and all I could think was "I got that beat by a mile (or 10,000)."
I am fairly certain I am the one and only listener in Mongolia (what you may know as Outer Mongolia, now just plain ol' Mongolia). I first came here in 2001 as a Peace Corps volunteer, left and ended up returning to work here.I really dig your podcast because it helps keep me sane on the walks to/from work, especially in the -30C winters.
For the longest time my only exposure to the Dead was through "Without a Net." I had aways enjoyed it but never got around to picking up any more recordings. Then I stumbled across your podcast a few months ago and the rest has been listening history. I have a lot of catching up to do after downloading all of your past shows from the mvy website and I am really looking forward to it. Could you play for me a nice China Rider (although Mongolia is not a part of China, it's at least in the neighborhood)? It would be appreciated.
So keep up the good work and thanks for the podcast.
