new favorite album // Animal Collective : “Centipede HZ”

Animal Collective // “Centipede HZ” : 2012.09.04 : Domino

genre psych noise pop

sounds like a crowd of boldly-dressed people scattered on a sunny sidewalk. an inflatable palm tree. bejewelled sea creatures. electric jello. a cartoon luau. Beatles pinball. a distant Caribbean house party. spontaneous baroque sculptures. Monet waterlilies. Pollock splatter. A yellow submarine coated in crustaceans and sea life.

notes a respectful follow up to Merriweather Post Pavilion and a stroke of genius in its own way

verdict at its heart it’s a perfect indie pop album though on the exterior it’s a beautifully imperfect mess
