Animal Collective returns to World Cafe after a four-year absence since its last studio album, Centipede Hz. In an effort to approach its newest record, Painting With, a bit differently, the three-piece version of Animal Collective (Panda Bear, Avey Tare and Geologist) flipped its typical script and recorded the album before ever performing the songs in concert. In this session, hear the band discuss its process and perform live.
