FBi Presents :: Animal Collective

Penny Drop and FBi present third millennium psychedelic heroes, Animal Collective. Set to deliver a truly transformative live experience in Australia this January, Animal Collective have taught us to expect the unexpected across ten albums and more than ten years.

Already announced for Big Day Out, the enigmatic quartet will bring their live show to Sydney’s Enmore Theatre making their first visit since their sold out tour three years ago.

The newly released Centipede Hz is the band’s first album since 2007’s Strawberry Jam to feature all four original band members: Avey Tare, Panda Bear, Geologist and Deakin.

Bursting with textures – radio snippets, advertising samples, broadcast static – and with a newfound rhythmic immediacy, Centipede Hz is enamoured by experimentation, with Rolling Stone noting of the album, “Something this inventive should be heard by everyone,” and the NME writing, “Vital, gritty, raw and live, Centipede Hz feels like another step forward.”
