Animal Collective will start their own weekly radio show this Sunday.
Streaming live on the band’s website, My Animal Home, the show will broadcast on Sunday evening, from 9pm to 2am. The first episode is curated by band member and Person Pitch solo star Panda Bear, and will feature guest mixes from Panda Bear, Black Dice, Haunted Graffiti, Sublime Frequencies and more. The radio show won’t continue indefinitely, however – the final show will be on August 19, a few weeks before the release of Animal Collective’s new album Centipede Hz.
It’s another interesting radio-based endeavour from Domino; earlier in the year, Domino sub-label Weird World employed similar (and enjoyable) tactics to promote Peaking Lights’ new album, Lucifer. Autechre also conducted a 12-hour radio broadcast to promote a new release for Warp in 2010.
