Pullin’ ‘Tubes: Stream New Animal Collective Album and Watch The Video For Today Supernatural

After years of being underground cult favorites, Animal Collective finally broke through to the mainstream with the release of 2009′s Merriweather Post Pavilion. The critically acclaimed album featured a heady mix of psychedelic soundscapes, layered, Beach Boys-esque, acid-drenched harmonies and general weirdness, and showed that the Baltimore-bred act could continue to push their musical vision, while putting out a record that was a bit more accessible than their previous work. After a three year wait, which saw solo releases from AC members Avey Tare and Panda Bear, the band will release their much anticipated follow up, Centipede Hz, on September 4, via Domino Records.

Today the band gives fans an advanced taste of the record, their first with their originally lineup since 2007′s Strawberry Jam, by streaming Centipede HZ via the web. For longtime AC fans that may have worried about the effect of mainstream success on their music, the band squashed those fears late last week with the release of the ultra-trippy Mad Max meets Burning Man music video for the album’s aggressive organ-drenched lead single Today Supernatural. Let’s check it out…

Animal Collective will kick off their 13-date North American tour on September 18 at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, which also includes a homecoming show at the Merriweather Post Pavilion on October 2, and a tour closing gig at the Williamsburg Waterfront on October 5.
