This is definitely one of Animal Collective's best songs, and
unfortunately it cant be recreated by just a guitar, but
here is the skeleton of the song and you can try
adding in whatever instruments or sounds you like!

I choose to play sixteenth notes on the D string
and strum the other parts of the chord in a
unpredictable fashion, and after each line of singing strum
the whole chord powerfully, but thats just my
way of playing it. Here's the chord you stay on the whole time.


If you play a harmonic on the 7th fret of the A string it sounds nice too.
Towards the end of the intro I like to start strumming the whole chord to the rhythm of 
rim of the snare.

Rest of the song:
It follows a pattern the whole time through, save the beiginning of this part.

Give each chord two measures.

e|-------  then to   e|-------  then to  e|-------  then to  e|-------|
B|----9--            B|----10-           B|----9--           B|----5--|
G|----X--            G|----X--           G|----X--           G|----X--|
D|----6--            D|----7--           D|----6--           D|----2--|
A|----X--            A|----X--           A|----X--           A|----X--|
E|----0--            E|----0--           E|----0--           E|----0--|

After that, this pattern of chords will go on through the rest of the song.
Again, give two measures for each chord


Just keep those chords going. Start to fade away on the chord that you started on. 
Hope you figure out!
