Reliably informed



Released: 04.02.22







Undeniably one of the most revered and essential indie bands of the 00s, Animal Collective became cult heroes, worshipped for the myriad of sounds, emotions and stories encompassed throughout their golden run of records.

With Time Skiffs, the whimsy is still present, yet the recklessness has matured into relaxation. Working to provide a safe heaven from the world, Animal Collective curate an immersive, free flowing album which consumes you as it drifts away aimlessly. For a record dedicated to its meandering, low-maintenance charm, Time Skiffs naturally loses direction on occasion but the rich, anodyne harmonies, transporting rhythms and alluring instrumentation all mould this album into a smile from beginning to end.
