Spirit They’re Gone, Spirit They’ve Vanished (Remastered 2023 2LP)
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.
