The members of Animal Collective, front row, and Coral Morphologic.

For its most recent release, the psychedelic pop group Animal Collective, a band with Baltimore roots, put out its second audiovisual album, “Tangerine Reef.” The work pairs original music by the band (the Panda Bear-less lineup of Dave Portner, aka Avey Tare; Josh Dibb, aka Deakin; and Brian Weitz, aka Geologist) with images of coral reefs filmed underwater by Coral Morphologic.

Created to mark the 2018 International Year of the Reef, the album is described by the band as “a visual tone poem consisting of time-lapse and slow pans across surreal aquascapes of naturally fluorescent coral and cameos by alien-like reef creatures.”

Putting that into a live context is not as easy as scheduling a show at a rock club. Appropriately, when the band plays the music live on Nov. 9 here in Baltimore, it will be at a grand old movie house, the Parkway Theatre, allowing the moving images to be as enveloping as the music.

Tickets for the just-announced show go on sale tomorrow at 10 a.m. and cost $25. You can view and listen to “Tangerine Reef” on your computer or smart TV at this link.
