The first taster from the Brooklyn experimentalists’ hotly-anticipated new album finds them playing to their strongest suit - cramming in myriad mind-boggling ideas while creating one focused whole by the end. Not as complex as ‘I Live With You’, more mental than ‘Knife’ – a welcome return from every Animal Collective fan’s second favourite band.
