A Collection Of Articles

As Centepede Hz comes closer to release, the band has been on somewhat of a press tour.

MTV Hive’s featured an interview with each of the guys: Geologist, Panda Bear, Avey Tare, and Deakin. They discuss the new album, their sound, the alien inspiration, and themselves.

Meanwhile, Pitchfork has an interview with the entire band covering similar topics, though they didn’t mention Merriweather Post Pavilion placemen on Pitchfork’s recent People’s List; it was 7th.

The New Gallery

I’ve finally added a new custom gallery to the site. There you’ll be able to watch both videos — from YouTube and Vimeo — and images from the band and band members. If you’d like to submit new content, you can do so by going to our forum. In the meantime, you can already browse through and comment on each item.

Centipede Hz Live Stream

Centipede Hz is currently streaming on Animal Collective‘s site. Unlike other ordinary online streams, the band has uploaded the entirety of their album presented as video. You can have this audio-visual experience and then submit your own custom mixtape to be eligible to win a vinyl pressing of the album. More info on that on mixcloud.

Back to the studio: a celebration!

From the band’s vimeo site:

“Scott Colburn had a great idea when we were recording Strawberry Jam. He set up a video camera to take short clips of footage once a minute for the whole time we were in the studio. This is the unedited result. Our tracking session for Strawberry Jam in Tucson at Wavelab Studios in 2007. We post this about 2 weeks before we will be heading into the studio to begin recording our next record. thanks to everyone for being part of our world.

Forum Redesign

After the switch from phpBB3 to Vanilla, the forum‘s design was set to a plain-looking default theme. However, that has now been changed, as I redesigned and styled the forum to match the rest of the site. Please check it out if you haven’t.
