Somehow, Animal Collective have managed to write their most Beach Boys-esque song to date without sounding a bit like anything that came out of Panda Bear’s Brian-Wilson-worship-era Person Pitch output.

If you’ve been listening to the show with any regularity for the past few months, you’re probably aware of my newfound obsession with drone-psychers Flying Saucer Attack.
