The experimental pop band crosses over in so many genres that every music fan can find something they like in Animal Collective. They write catchy hooks with fun melodies, but their sound borders on the lines of psychedelic and alternative. The band just released their 11th studio album called Painting With. Often compared to the Beach Boys, the band even recorded some of the album in the same studio that the Beach Boys recorded Pet Sounds. They deepened their sound too by adding a brass section to strengthen the record as a whole.
