The members of Animal Collective have always been free to indulge in solo projects.
Spending time apart seems to rejuvenate the band, whilst those projects often result in some fascinating, furiously inventive music.
Avey Tare recently began work on new material, using his acoustic guitar as a frame of reference. Angel Deradoorian (of Dirty Projectors, Deradoorian) added some melodic lines, before Jeremy Hyman (of Ponytail, Dan Deacon) took charge of percussion.
