Animal Collective Announce Vinyl Re-Pressing of FEELS
Feels was the sixth studio album for Animal Collective and was originally released on April 22, 2015. The album brought the band huge critical acclaim and has been a fan favorite for its 13-years of existence. The two-disc vinyl, long out of print, is in stores and available for order today via the band's label My Animal Home HERE!
To mark the occasion, the band is also releasing a live bootleg (recorded by Sparkle Girl) from their August 22, 2004 performance at Neumos in Seattle, WA. Head over to the band's website My Animal Home to listen to the show.
"The show was the first time [producer] Scott Colburn heard any of the Feels songs," says Brian Weitz. "We had already asked him to record the album but we didn't have demos and he wanted to hear the material first. He was playing in Climax Golden Twins at the time, who were also on the bill with us and Black Dice that night, so this was the test. Luckily, our set sealed the deal and we all moved into his house six months later to start tracking. A small part of us never left. If we've seemed a bit rushed after Seattle shows in the years since, it's because we were in a hurry to get back there for another late night VHS horror movie screening."
Feels was made by all four animals in the collective: Panda Bear, Avey Tare, Geologist and Deakin, along with a few contributions from guests outside the core group (including Eyvind Kang and Doctess). Pitchfork ranked the album the 55th best album of its decade and had perfect or near perfect ratings at Entertainment Weekly, The Wire and others.
