Every once in a while, musicians sweep away the existing musical landscape to create something new. Animal Collective is such a group, and its new Merriweather Post Pavilion is such an album.

On Wednesday, Jan. 21, Dave Portner (a.k.a. Avey Tare) and Noah Lennox (a.k.a. Panda Bear) of Animal Collective spoke with All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen and took listeners' questions about the new album. The album, Merriweather Post Pavilion, is also available to hear in its entirety on NPR Music as part of the First Listen series.
