* ArchivePanic: As of 2015, in only 15 years of existence, the group had already released 9 studio albums, 6 EPs, 11 singles (often with exclusive B-sides), 2 live albums composed mostly of original material, and the visual album ODDSAC, with a new studio album on the way soon. And that's not even counting all of the member's side projects, live songs that never made it on an album or compilation, and collaborations with other artists. And to add to the confusion, absolutely none of their albums sound even remotely the same.

Because of the band's stance as a "collective", not every member of the band appears on every album (for example, Deakin is absent on ''Music/MerriweatherPostPavilion'', Geologist doesn't appear on ''Campfire Songs'' and only Avey Tare and Panda Bear perform on ''Sung Tongs''). Panda Bear has released four solo albums since 1998, and Avey Tare has one of his own. Deakin has toured with solo material of his, but no album has been released yet.

Sky'', and many others.
