The Ticket gig of The week
The giant inflatable tentacles and teeth on stage suggested we were in another world, and Animal Collective’s performance confirmed it. Borrowing mainly from their most recent record Centipede Hz, they created a tapestry of shape-shifting sound and swirling rhythm, with yelping vocals and watery-sounding harmonies amid a psychedelic atmosphere, with Moonjock and Today’s Supernatural as particularly transcendent moments.
