8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 21 January 2010
I'm probably not the best person to review Animal Collective's 2003 album 'Campfire Songs' as I've still not really got to grips with the band. I own last yea'rs crowd pleasing 'Merriweather Post-Pavilion' but I'm not at all familiar with their back catalogue or the epic journey that bought them to my attention in the first place. 'Campfire Songs' is a stripped down early incarnation of the band and music is recorded outside, live and direct to mini disc in an attempt to bring the ambience of nature and the outdoors to an indoor listening experience. Featuring five original compositions, 'Campfire Songs' departs from the electronics heavy sound that I've become familiar with, abandoning it in favour of naturalist, acoustic arrangements that focus of melodic chants and wordless harmonies. I'm sure some of these ideas will have been explored by the group on the intervening albums between this and 'Merriweather....' but this is first time I've heard the band perform in such a loose and carefree manner and it sounds great. Reissue courtesy of Paw Tracks.
