Animal Collective will return to New Zealand for the third time in January — their first as a four piece — with one show at Auckland’s Powerstation in support of their new LP Centipede Hz. This is the news I was hoping for when they were added to Australia’s Big Day Out 2013 line-up, especially after I regrettably missed them back in 2009 on their Merriweather Post Pavilion tour. Hopefully this is the first of many Big Day Out sideshows for New Zealand following our loss of the festival, as I’m also hanging out to see Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Vampire Weekend and Sleigh Bells.
