Published Oct 15, 2015This weekend marks the 10th anniversary of Animal Collective's album Feels, which came out back on October 18, 2005. To celebrate, the band have shared a full live set from 2004 featuring many of the songs that would later appear on Feels.
The gig was recorded at Chapel Hill, NC's Cat's Cradle on November 18, 2004. This tour was in support of the group's 2004 album Sung Tongs, but the set was heavy on then-unreleased material (as the group were known for extensively road-testing new songs). Six of the nine songs from Feels appear here, as do all three songs from the 2006 Feels spinoff EP People. Only only song from Sung Tongs, "Kids on Holiday," is included.
As is typical of this era in Animal Collective's career, the performance is characterized by a somewhat-conventional rock setup that emphasizes electric guitars. Scroll past the setlist to hear the hour-and-20-minute show.
