If you like any of the following bands, you will probably like Animal Collective
Animal Collective is one of those bands that is so unique that you aren't quite sure what type of genre restriction you could put on them.
They use a combination of incredibly reverb drenched electronic instruments, with incredibly catchy vocal lines to create something really special.
Their album "Merriweather Post Pavillion" has track-after-track of catchy songs.
Although that album is much more "Solid" and has a lot more order in the composition (Not as progressive), some of their earlier works are some of the most progressive and non-structured songs I've ever heard (Maybe 2nd to Fantomas).
A lot of the indie/hipster crowd is into Animal Collective, but in reality I think most people should be able to enjoy their new album (as their older stuff might be too "out there" for a mainstream crowd to access).
I've always wanted to play a cover of their tunes, but I'm not sure that any amount of electronic-messing-around would enable me to do it; their songs are simply too complex!
Of course, when I talk about electronic tunes I referring to them sampling a lot (Not using actual Electronic sounds, but using electronic instruments to replicate acoustic instruments and sounds).
In any case, they are an incredibly creative and psychedelic band, take a listen below!

My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
