Animal Collective – Centipede Hz or: The Hipster Joy of New Purchases

By pete_the_lion | | Music, Reviews, Uncategorized

This album will not be for everybody, a fact probably made obvious when you take into account the fact the band used balloons, dripping water, foil and small metal figures as instruments.
