Animal Collective presented the final episode of their weekly radio show last night, closing the series with a Geologist set and a streaming version of the group’s new album.

“My show is actually a version of a mix I made for Ben Allen (Centipede Hz Producer) before we went into the studio,” explained Geologist. “He asked us for a list of songs that we might reference in terms of sound and vibe so he could understand how we wanted the album to sound. We put together a list of songs that either encompassed the overall sound and vibe, or just had specific things we liked, such as drums sounds, or vocal effects. Rather than just send him each song, I thought it’d be fun to make transitions in between each track and sequence it out into 4 separate continuous hypothetical LP sides, which is what we were thinking for the sequencing of our album. For the final show of AC Radio we thought it’d be cool to play this inspirational mix and the album back to back.”

Due out September 4th through Domino, Centipede Hz is now available to hear at a special site alongside videos from Avey Tare’s sister Abby Portner. You can also listen to each member’s radio show–including guest mixes from Pantha Du Prince, Haunted Graffiti, Atlas Sound and more–down below…
