Have You Heard The New…Animal Collective Album?
Ok, so my internet sitch isn’t so great yet – working on it! Then there’s gonna be more posts. Posts galore, I say! In the meantime, some quick thoughts on the new Animal Collective album, Centipede Hz.
Centipede Hz is a really cool album. As has been the case for the last couple albums, they don’t repeat themselves but fuse the samplegaze of the last album and the energy of their mid-period albums (Sung Tongs, Feels) into something more aggressive, swampy, and, in some case, exciting. There aren’t any songs that are as mindblowing or accessible as “My Girls”, but they’re all pretty deece, some more than others. “Rosie Oh” is definitely my fav.
Maybe right now we’re not gonna think it’s so revolutionary because Merriweather really was a revolutionary album, but once the rest of music catches up and we can judge these albums on the basis of their content alone, Centipede Hz is gonna be up there with the best of their stuff. It’s classic AC – innovative, exciting, fun, etc.
