Animal Collective look back over their entire career in the brand new issue of Uncut.

The Maryland group have reviewed all their own albums, including the forthcoming Centipede Hz, in the latest issue.

The new issue of Uncut, dated September 2012 and also featuring Joe Strummer, Captain Beefheart and Bob Dylan, is out on Friday, July 27.
