EDITORS’ NOTES

Having waded deeper into electronic waters with Merriweather Post Pavilion, the onetime freak-folkies in Animal Collective discover vast new worlds of color and texture on Centipede Hz. “Applesauce” tosses jangly ‘60s garage pop down a funhouse hall of mirrors; “Today’s Supernatural” heaves like a roller-coaster in a hurricane, yet it's also one of their catchiest songs ever. “Rosie Oh” exemplifies their effortless balancing act between lilting vocal harmonies and wildly psychedelic details: Writhing like a bag of centipedes, it’s nevertheless eminently hummable.
