Pre-Order. Released 12th May, via Domino
Chiming laments for a childhood's end, the debut album from Animal Collective, Spirit They're Gone, Spirit They've Vanished opens with the phrase "want to hear a secret, I know one," suggesting these secrets just might be buried deep within the flocks of high frequencies, electronic glitches, bleeps and swells that follow. Originally released in 2000 and credited to Avey Tare & Panda Bear prior to the full, collective band name being used on releases, this reissue features remastered audio and new artwork by Abby and Dave Portner.
Available on indies-only Grass Green Vinyl, gatefold sleeve, Includes a download of the A Night at Mr. Raindrop's Holistic Supermarket EP featuring 5 previously unreleased songs recorded from the same era
