Painting With is the tenth studio album by American experimental pop band Animal Collective, released on February 19, 2016. The album is a follow-up to Centipede Hz (2012), and features contributions from John Cale and Colin Stetson. It peaked at No. 46 on the Billboard 200. Three singles were issued: "FloriDada" (2015), "Lying in the Grass", and "Golden Gal" (both 2016). A companion EP, The Painters, was released the following year.

Despite its futuristic sheen, Animal Collective's music has always evoked a primitive kind of purity. Their songs morphed and rambled and writhed with the liveness of kimchi or kombucha, less finished product than something that fermented and evolved as you listened. No doubt said jokers will be happy to hear that the band prepared for their new album, Painting With, by bringing baby pools into the studio and projecting dinosaurs on the wall. Like 2012's Centipede Hz, Painting With is a bright, epileptically busy piece of music that crams every element of the band's sound into a landscape without depth or recess.

Animal Collective's 11th album, Painting With, is out today (Feb. 19). A predominantly ebullient collection of experimental synth songs with layered harmonies and tribal beats, Painting With contains more blatant pop culture references - an audio snippet of The Golden Girls opens one song, for instance - than ever before from the long-running indie demigods. Painting With finds the group returning to a trio (the same lineup as on 2009's Merriweather Post Pavilion, their best-seller to date) after bumping back up to a quartet for the dark, anxious Centipede Hz in 2012.

This is the Animal Collective we get on Painting With - don't be surprised if experience doesn't prepare you for what the future holds. The album's title and the band's promotional iPhone app of the same name both give you a clue as to what exactly has propelled the new direction. For this album's recording process, the band chose a radically different approach than Centipede. Painting With is out now through Domino Recordings! Grab it at your local record store on CD or vinyl. Animal Collective are touring the new album as a trio, and they will make a stop at the Neptune with opener Ratking on March 4! The show is sold out, but you can check it out here. Or so people like to say with a sort of flippant superiority.

Painting With is unmistakably an Animal Collective album, but in its eager familiarity, it ultimately neglects the one all-important quality of any Animal Collective record: novelty. Painting With is arguably the most melodic of Animal Collective's many records, and yet, it's also one of the least memorable - by the album's end, it's hard to recall much about the compositions here, even after a number of run-throughs.

The AnCo discography runs together like a coming of age story split between distinct stages of experimentation and self discovery. If 'Strawberry Jam' captured the band at their most technicolor, as reflected by the album's gaudy sleeve, then the predominantly beige tones of 'Painting With's cover speak volumes. Someone's stolen half of the boys' crayons. We're left wondering just what happened to the band who ran the hypnotic spoken word creep-fest ' into the children's cartoon theme song 'Winter Wonder Land' before collapsing into the nightmarish nostalgia of 'Cuckoo Cuckoo'.

camping and took mushrooms every time you meet them. You’re left with an album on which smug self-indulgence is matched with genuine inventiveness. Painting With won’t change anyone’s mind about Animal Collective, or even help the undecided make theirs up. The devotees will doubtless be more devoted than ever after listening to it, objectors can still find plenty of reason to object, and perhaps that’s what the band want.
