Animal Collective have uploaded a video on their vimeo channel that shows a time lapse of the making of their 2007 album Strawberry Jam. The video runs for 9 mins, and skips through snippets of the entire process of the recording sessions.
In December last year, band member Avey Tare let slip in an interview with Madison.com that the band have started working on new material . The plans were to start the recording sessions this month. Speculation about the inevitable release of the album had been building following the band’s performances at various festivals earlier in the year where they played a sprinkling of as-yet-unheard new material.
