Animal Collective, 'Water Curses' (Domino)

Amid the globules of sound on "Cobwebs," Animal Collective's Avey Tare mumbles about being "organic like strawberry meat." But on this new four-song EP, that's as close as the Brooklyn group gets to the compacted Day-Glo noise pop of last year's Strawberry Jam. The title track is a garrulously burbling treat, but the piano-led whale song "Seal Eyeing" reveals the group as comfy at the deep end of their sound pool. Even when singing about domestic concerns on the dubbed-out "Street Flash," they sound ungrounded, drifting away in blissful inertia.
