Animal Collective - Centipede HZ

As promised, Animal Collective will be streaming their new album, Centipede Hz, in its entirety tonight on their weekly online radio show, following Geologist’s mix of songs that inspired the LP. We’ve already heard (and seen) “Today’s Supernatural” so it’s probably about time we figured out what the rest of this record’s deal is. Is it as weird as Deakin stated it would be? Only one way to find out — let us Prematurely Evaluate together below like a family. Head over to the streaming show to jump in on the broadcast and tell us what you think.

Here’s the tracklist so you know how to refer to the songs once it starts:
1. “Moonjock” – 5:04
2. “Today’s Supernatural” – 4:18
3. “Rosie Oh” – 2:57
4. “Applesauce” – 5:34
5. “Wide Eyed” – 5:00
6. “Father Time” – 4:35
7. “New Town Burnout” – 6:01
8. “Monkey Riches” – 6:46
9. “Mercury Man” – 4:18
10. “Pulleys” – 3:31
11. “Amanita” – 5:39

Centipede Hz is out 9/4 via Domino.

UPDATE: You can stream the album, track-by-track, at the band’s website now.

  12. These dudes just watched the movie “House” a fuckton while making this.

  13. The groove in this song is great

  14. Is anyone else noticing the real-time updating of Deakin’s wikipedia?

  15. This whole radio theme is reminding me how, soon after Merriweather Post Pavilion came out, when I was doing a super long drive through Michigan, I picked up some radio station (college radio I guess) that was just playing Merriweather Post Pavilion from beginning to end, without interruption. I think I first noticed it was happening as they played during “Also Frightened” and it was about half static by the time “Brother Sport” came on. It was done totally without explanation. A truly weird experience: I feel like I may have just hallucinated it.

  16. Wow, Wide Eyed into Father Time was one helluva transition. More please.

  17. So far, I’m digging the album.
    Catchy, experimental, Merriweather Post Pavillion is getting a fight

  19. Love the visual for this one

  20. annnnd just watch panda make his case here… loved this song live last summer

  21. dumb question, but is it only playing once?

  22. the visuals are so good here they could easily turn this into the official video clip.

  23. Can you ever get enough Panda Bear? Holy dick.

  24. Everything since Applesauce has been really great.

  25. I’m going to be honest guys, I was totally prepared to not like, even hate this album, because I didn’t initially like Today’s Supernatural. But now that I actually hear it, this shit’s great. I love it. I even love Today’s Supernatural now. The power of Animal Collective right there.

  38. Remember hearing a lot of these jams at Coachella 2011 and just thinking how fucking cool they would sound recorded and produced. It is safe to say, they are well beyond my expectations.
