The album stream is the latest transmission from Animal Collective Radio. 'Centipede Hz' accompanies a mix from Geologist, which seemingly provides a guide to the music which inspired the album.

"My show is actually a version of a mix I made for Ben Allen ('Centipede Hz' Producer) before we went into the studio. He asked us for a list of songs that we might reference in terms of sound and vibe so he could understand how we wanted the album to sound. We put together a list of songs that either encompassed the overall sound and vibe, or just had specific things we liked, such as drums sounds, or vocal effects. Rather than just send him each song, I thought it'd be fun to make transitions in between each track and sequence it out into 4 separate continuous hypothetical LP sides, which is what we were thinking for the sequencing of our album. For the final show of AC Radio we thought it'd be cool to play this inspirational mix and the album back to back."
