No matter what genre you want to call them -- freak folk, avant-garde psychedelia, Pitchfork Police Masturbatory Fodder -- Animal Collective’s ear for beautiful pop buried underneath distortion and experimentalism is undeniable to even the hardest critic. The band’s eighth LP, Merriweather Post Pavilion, named after an outdoor music venue in Maryland that band members have been frequenting since their youth, shows a band restlessly refusing to leave their peak. After the well-received LPs Sung Tongs, Feels and Strawberry Jam, AC have truly honed the weird art they make without sounding stale or like they’re going through the motions.
