Synopsis

Product Description
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 our intention to simply keep the cd in print for as long as possible.An idea originally thought up by Dave Portner and Noah Lennox while in college, Campfire Songs is not a record of songs sung around a campfire but a record that hints at songs emerging from the fire itself: "We wanted to give the music the feeling and atmosphere of the outdoors and the warmth of a fire, so people could bring it indoors."
 

CD Reviews

Important step in Animal Collective's development
Erodetus Sum | michigan | 02/07/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Though the initial pressing of this release was not credited to Animal Collective, it is actually the first album in their discography that the entire band plays on (as it's their first album to feature Deakin.) Now Animal Collective has reissued the album with their name appearing in the liner notes. This is probably Animal Collective's sparsest, most ethereal album. Though popular rumor is that this record is an improvisation, it's actually a very carefully composed performance captured in a very stripped down manner, everyone playing together live, recording to Geologist's mini-disc recorders on a screened in porch (in mid-November no less). It takes many listens for the structure of this record to reveal itself, and anyone who got into Animal Collective through their last few albums and EP's would do well to check out their album Sung Tongs and the Prospect Hummer EP with Vashti Bunyan to get a sense of this side of the band before looking into Campfire Songs. But for shameless fanboys such as myself who were just a little too late the first time around, this reissue is a must."
