I'm a big fan of AnCo. Although there's been ups and downs of who's in the band, they still manage to push out some really good albums. Not the most consistent artist I'd have to say. I appreciate that they're going in their own creative direction with their latest two albums, but it does seem like they're catering to the party crowd a little bit. Ultimately it's up to them, they probably got bored of doing the same-ish kinds of music so they're experimenting, all power to them, I'll still give it a listen every now and again to see if I can get into it.

The real noteworthy albums you will want to listen to are (not in order): MPP, SJam, Feels, STongs, STGSTV. There's some other cool albums but these are the ones that I'd say are their best work. Give them a listen, especially if you've only heard their latest stuff.

I've loved these guys for so long, but I can't deny that I've been a little disappointed with their output post- the Fall Be Kind ep. I was hoping Centipede Hz was just a misstep, but I guess they're sticking with the MAXIMAL WOOGLY-GOOGLY SOUNDS AT ALL TIMES vibe. And I say this as someone who digs the maximal woogly-googly aesthetic as a rule! I just miss the days when AC could get hushed and intimate. They sound like they make music strictly for the outdoor festival circuit, and more power to them; their songs, however, are no longer aimed directly at my heart.

The other side of this, though, is that as AC goes "off the rails (for me, at least), their solo work just gets better and better. Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks and Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper were leagues beyong Centipede Hz and Painting With.

Fresh and original. They recreated the psych music genre completely.

One of the few modern psych bands that always sound completely fresh and innovative without having to borrow sounds from the 60's/70's/80's.

1. Spirit They're Gone
2. Sung Tongs
3. Feels
4. Merriweather
5. Strawberry Jam

Probably my favourite band of the 2000s. The run of Sung Tongs - Feels - Strawberry Jam - Merriweather Post Pavilion is just unbelievable.
