Animal Collective: Album Stream with Visuals
The new Animal Collective album Centipede Hz is set for release the first week of September. However, the group has debuted the album on Animal Collective Radio and a stream is available with bonus visuals created by artist Abby Portner. Centipede Hz can be heard (and viewed) at radio.myanimalhome.net.
In addition, Animal Collective member Geologist created a DJ mix for the project. He explains:
My show is actually a version of a mix I made for Ben Allen (Centipede Hz Producer) before we went into the studio. He asked us for a list of songs that we might reference in terms of sound and vibe so he could understand how we wanted the album to sound. We put together a list of songs that either encompassed the overall sound and vibe, or just had specific things we liked, such as drums sounds, or vocal effects. Rather than just send him each song, I thought it’d be fun to make transitions in between each track and sequence it out into 4 separate continuous hypothetical LP sides, which is what we were thinking for the sequencing of our album. For the final show of AC Radio we thought it’d be cool to play this inspirational mix and the album back to back.
This is the first Animal Collective album to feature all four members of the band in a number of years. The group has been hyper sensitive to how the album’s tracks are released.
