Paw Tracks is proud to present the reissue of Animal Collective’s 2003 album “Campfire Songs.” Since the CD’s original issue on Catsup Plate recently went out of print it is their intention to simply keep the cd in print for as long as possible.
While the songs were completed in the apartment that three of the members shared (Geologist does not play on this album) they chose to record the music on a screened-in porch in Maryland using portable mini disc players so as to allow the ambience of trees blowing in the wind, the birds chirping and the insects in the area to become an integral part of the sound flow. What remains intact are the melodies that have always
been a part of the AC sound-though here they have been stripped away of any electronic accompaniment and stretched and slowed to a calmer place than anywhere AC had been before and perhaps has gone since.
