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.

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.

Lyrics & Discography

The Lyrics and Discography sections are back online. Comments are available on those pages as well. There are two more sections to go before the rebuild is finished.

Again, if any of you are interested in helping the site by uploading and sharing pictures or live shows of the band, please reply in the forum.

The Site Is Coming Back

After our recent downtime, I’ve been busy rebuilding the site. Currently the News and Community sections are available. Soon, I’ll include the Bio, Discography, Lyrics, and About sections. Once those are online, I’ll style the forum to match the site and start recreating the gallery and gets sections.

Help Wanted

Since we lost all our media files, meaning photos and live shows, I’m currently looking for people to restore them to the site. If you’re interested in helping, please visit the forum and read this post.

Nine More Shows To Download

I’ve spent a few hours putting up a few more shows on the Gets section, as well as the live mix “preview” of Fall Be Kind. Here’s the list of all the new additions to the site:

Moreover, according to a poster who is an editor of a UK music site Animal Collective are done with their Visual Album (read the post), which they first started recording in 2006. The release date is still not mentioned but, it will be out next year. Post about this news and the new upcoming album in our message board.

Updated Dicography – Fall Be Kind EP

Since the Fall Be Kind EP is practically out the door, I’ve recently added it to the Collectography, I’ll be adding a few shows and lyrics to the site as well over this short recess from the university. Moreover, I’ve added a few of the singles that I was missing to it as well, which were: Brothersport, My Girls, and Summertime Clothes.
