About this item
Distinguishing itself from Animal Collective’s expansive catalog, Isn’t It Now? is the first Animal Collective album since Centipede Hz (2012) that was recorded with all four members in the same room at the same time. To bring it all together, the band enlisted multi-Grammy winning producer Russell Elevado (D’Angelo, Al Green, Alicia Keys, The Dandy Warhols) to co-produce alongside the band.
Across its 9 tracks, Isn’t It Now? has something for everyone from the catchy bassline on the highly-repeatable single “Gem & I” to the heady 22min centrepiece “Defeat” which we recently released on 12”.
Barry says: Never one to stick with a formula, the weird and wonderful Animal Collective return for 'Isn't It Now?', fusing the oddball jank of their wild earlier records with a more relaxed, mature pace. The off-piste 22-minute epic of 'Defeat' on the c-side is a particular highlight.
