''Sung Tongs'' is the fifth album by Baltimore-based band Animal Collective, released on May 3, 2004 by Fat Cat Records.

Despite the name 'Animal Collective' attached to this album, only two of the band's four members play on it: Avey Tare (David Portner) and Panda Bear (Noah Lennox). As a result, ''Sung Tongs'' is a more stripped-down affair than other Animal Collective releases. On the album, Portner and Lennox both utilize acoustic guitars and tribal-like drums; the electric guitar, an important element in the Collective's previous album, Here Comes the Indian, is nowhere to be found. This sound brought the band closer to the psych folk and freak folk genres that critics tended to group them in around this period.

''Sung Tongs'' is generally considered to be Animal Collective's breakthrough release; it generated much praise from critics upon its release and was frequently featured in best-of lists at the end of 2004. - Wikipedia
