Animal Collective seem to exist in a universe all its own. With roots in Baltimore and formative years here in New York, the band has carved out a unique niche in the music world. The release of its tenth album, Painting With, gives us the rare chance to catch up with Avey Tare (a.k.a. David Portner), Panda Bear (a.k.a. Noah Lennox) and Geologist (a.k.a. Brian Weitz).

In this FUV Live session, hear a pair of live songs and learn why Painting With is Animal Collective’s Ramones record and shares common ground with "Planet of the Apes."
