Follow up to their previous release, Strawberry Jam and latest EP Water Curses, Merriweather Post Pavillion (due out on Jan 20th) is pretty much the same deal. One noticeable change would be their tendency to steer stronger toward Noah Lennox's style and structure. Personally, I think that's unfortunate, but what can you do. Nonetheless, here is Animal Collectives 2009 release. Its decent, as usual their tracks pick up towards the end making for a jammish finale.
