Episode 118 of 718 episodes

Animal Collective in concert, with host Bob Boilen. Animal Collective makes wildly experimental sound collages its members describe as "sonic, freeform, electronic, horror, gospel, hip-hop, soul, pop madness." To some, it's more noise than music. But to the group's fans, Animal Collective is making the most inventive and playfully refreshing sounds of the year. A set list for this show is available at NPR.org.
