Expanding on the more experimental parts of 2009’s ‘Merriweather Post Pavilion’, this sonic canter through the various studio cuts and live material from a performance at New York’s Guggenheim Museum marks Animal Collective at their most creative – a brilliantly superfluous and utterly bonkers soundscape of electronic skits, rasping vocals and dotted birdsong.
