Label: Domino
Key Track: "Peacebone"

Sometimes, when you're trying to describe music to someone, you use the word "whimsical." You don't know why you do it, or if it's even accurate, but that's all you can think of. Well, that band was probably Animal Collective, and you were probably talking about this album. How six-minute jams sound whimsical is beyond us, but they manage to do it.

YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
The album's title was inspired by a packet of jam lead singer Panda Bear opened on a transatlantic flight to Greece.
