Anyone that tuned into the first edition of Animal Collective’s new online radio show yesterday evening will have been in for a surprise.

The improbably successful Baltimore psych-rock unit used their new broadcast outlet to air a track from forthcoming new album Centipede Hz . ‘Today’s Supernatural’ is the first track to emerge from the sessions, and it’s surprisingly punchy, featuring a moderately coherent verse/chorus progression, some rawk vocals and a bit of rifferama for good measure. Sorry, Danse Manatee fans – it looks like the pop-literate Animal Collective of Merriweather Post Pavilion are here to stay.

You can listen to the band’s radio show, presented by Panda Bear, hereCentipede Hz is due on September 4 on Domino. [via Pitchfork]
