Animal Collective reissue ‘Feels’ on vinyl alongside new unheard 2004 live album

Animal Collective are reissuing their 2005 album Feels on vinyl.

The band revealed that the album features freshly remastered tracks and will be released by their own label My Animal Home.

To accompany the news, Animal Collective also revealed a rare and unheard 2004 live album which was recorded at Neumos in Seattle. “The show was the first time [producer] Scott Colburn heard any of the Feels songs,” founding member Geologist said in a statement. “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.”
