Animal Collective - "Today's International"

Animal Collective guitarist Josh "Deakin" Dibb promised the Baltimore psychedelic crew would be "taking a left turn at weird town" with their forthcoming LP Centipede Hz. The record's first single "Today's International", which Panda Bear dropped (along with two unreleased jams of his own) Saturday night on Animal Collective Radio, gives credence to that. Gone are the breezy melodies of Merriweather Post Pavilion, replaced by racing synths, tumbling African drumming, and Avey Tare's newfound jittery yelp. Hear it below.

To recap: Centipede HZ, slated for a Sept. 4th release, will undoubtedly be loud, weird, and still damn good.
