Welcome back to Episode 3 of: Can Animal Collective Actually Make Good Solo Music?

If you are looking for an album to chill you the f out to, I think this is pretty excellent choice. It kind of feels like a companion piece to Animal Collectives Campfire Song’s as I usually play this album right after it. It’s very minimalistic but the lush guitar work and vocals are so peaceful and soul cleansing it feels like what Panda Bear set out to do here really worked. My favourite tracks are Untitled 1, Untitled 4 and Untitled 6.
