Animal Collective Release Cover Artwork For Strawberry Jam
By: Spacelab Research Staff
Animal Collective's Strawberry Jam is one of the most anticpated releases of the year, and Domino Records has released the artwork in the runup to the September 10th release date. Gotta parcel this stuff out in pieces, you know, web traffic comes in waves...
Strawberry Jam will be the first full length release since 2005's Feels, a major album of its own. The news on Strawberry Jam is that the band has continued down the same experimental path while making things a little more listenable.
The music for this album was actually started two years ago, so it would be interesting to hear what the band is actually working on right now. Animal Collective really is one of those ahead of its time bands, so right now they're prbably developing the sounds that bands will be copying in 2010.
The songs were written in international hotspots like New York, Lisbon, Paris and Baltimore (who knew?) by Avey Tare and Panda Bear, with the rest of the band adding a more complete sound as they all hooked up to work through the music.
The band recorded the album at the Wavelab in Tucson with Scott Colburn (Arcade Fire, Animal Collective) as the producer, then headed back to Brooklyn for the final mixdown with Nicholas Vernhes at the Rare Book Room.
Strawberry Jam is due for release in September via Domino Records. The band recently made the move to Domino after releasing music on the UK-based FatCat Records.
