the painters ep
it has come to pass that one of the unique and exciting things about a new animal collective full-length is the companion ep that always follows, with some career highpoints for the band turning up on past releases like ‘fall be kind’ and ‘people’.
‘The Painters EP’ is a companion release to ‘Painting With’, containing four studio cuts deemed to out there or otherworldly for album-style consumption. As such the band unleash their most colourful, restless and playful side, including a live-favourite ‘jimmy mack’, made famous by Martha & The Vandellas. Animal Collective are still making-good on the implicit promise of their music to never, ever be boring. “delirious and downright confusing — in the best way” 7/10 – spill magazine
