Watch Deerhunter jam with Animal Collective

It's a wild one.

Fans of Deerhunter were in for a surprise last night when they brought out fellow psych-rockers Animal Collective at a show on their summer tour.

The members of Animal Collective (except Panda Bear, aka Noah Lennox, who was unfortunately missing) joined Bradford Cox and the rest of the boys during the encore. The performance was completely unrehearsed and out of the blue, but it didn’t matter. AnCo’s trademark summery, gurgling pulses and grooves were a perfect match for Deerhunter’s sinewy guitar riffs. Needless to say, the crowd lapped it all up.

Deerhunter also debuted new songs during the show, too, that’s set to appear on their upcoming eighth studio release.

And then Animal Collective took the stage to do a group jam with Deerhunter.
