The Return of Animal Collective's Campfire Songs

The formerly out of print Campfire Songs which was released in 2003 by Animal Collective, will be reissued January 26, 2010. The record is described by the band as not camp fire songs technically, but rather a record that hints at songs emerging from fire: "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." - Portner and Lennox

The songs were partially completed in an apartment that three shared, (Geologist does not appear on the album). It was recorded on a screened-in porch using portable mini disc players. This allowed for the surrounding sounds of nature to become an integral part of the sound achieved.
