About this item

Perhaps one of the most talked-about aspects of the eighth Animal Collective album is its optical illusion cover art - oddly acting as a pre-cursor to the sonic invention within. Ever the experimentalists, the New York-based indie troupe decamped to Mississippi for this offering, resulting in the usual vaguely-avant indie pop, but with a definite focus and a more accessible vibe. Listening to "Merriweather Post Pavilion" you'll hear echoes of everything they've recorded to date, especially the mesmeric and melodic repetition of Panda Bear's last solo opus "Person Pitch". Production duty comes from friend of the band Ben Allen.
