A lot of people, myself included, got a nice way to curb some of the madness that took over when the new Animal Collective album was on the horizon last year — radio! Seriously, Centipede Hz Radio kept me sane for those last weeks of the summer; gradually giving fans bits of information, songs that inspired the record, and finally the full album paired with Abby Portner’s trippy visuals. The band really connected with their fans in those last couple weeks, and (without any leaks for once) got us all online to hear Centipede Hz, for the first time, together. Now Centipede Hz Radio is back again if you missed any of the old broadcasts. Just go to radio.myanimalhome.net and you can pretend that it’s summer 2012 again.

In other news, Animal Collective have released some psychedelic live videos of their New York performance at Terminal 5 last year, which will probably give you a good idea of what to expect when they go on tour this month. The Creator’s Project, who helped relaunch the radio show and release the live videos, is also doing a contest to win a pair of tickets at certain shows, you can check that out here. Watch their performance of “Applesauce,” “Moonjock,” And “Amanita,” and check out tour dates below.
