At times, Centipede Hz seems almost deliberately alienating, as if Avey Tare, Panda Bear and their collaborators felt the need to tone down commercial and artistic expectations — say, back to a level someplace beneath “reinventing music as we know it.” But, more to the point, the album captures the sound of studio wizards who are once again ready to unleash some sweaty savagery on the live stage.
