Animal Collective have many, many strengths but brevity has never really been one of them. Until now, that is, because their M.O. for the follow-up to 2012’s Centipede Hz was "no B.S, get in, get out material." Recorded at the Hollywood studio where The Beach Boys created Pet Sounds, and inspired by "Cubism, Dadaism, and the distorted way those artists viewed the world", Painting With is every bit as ambitious as previous Animal Collective records. And yet, out of the jumble of complex polyrhythms, psychedelic synth effects and hyperactive vocal harmonies, the trio have conjured a set that's flab-free and packed full of pop hooks.
