About this album

Strawberry Jam is the seventh studio album by Baltimore based band Animal Collective. It was released on September 11, 2007, and is the band’s first release for domino records. The title and track listing were revealed by band member Geologist on the Collected Animals message board on May 16, 2007. The press response to Strawberry Jam was mostly positive, with some lauding its unique sound as a large step forward in the band’s evolution. The album charted on the Billboard Top 200, debuting and peaking at #72.

Strawberry Jam was released on iTunes with an exclusive live version of “Cuckoo Cuckoo”, the video for “Peacebone”, and a digital reproduction of the album’s booklet.

The Album was recorded at Wave Lab Studios in Tucson, Arizona. Band member Brian Weitz explained why they chose this location on the Collected Animals message board:

“dave and i were talking a few months back about environments to record and one of us was like maybe it’d be sweet to make this next one a desert record and then everyone was like yeah man we haven’t done that yet and it seems like it could fit the songs and the way we want them to sound. that might not make sense to anyone but us because when you think of the desert you think of twangy guitars and morricone soundtracks and jim morrison walking with the ghost of an indian, but we don’t really see it that way. we looked at a bunch of studios from southern california to new mexico and settled on one we liked in tucson. plus i’ve spent about a year and a half of my life living in the tucson area”

    I have some incredible memories with this album. [2] as in, literally, not credible memories. things that are probably not physically or metaphysically possible. things i can't explain and may never come to terms with. terrible, wonderful, existentially horrifying, uplifting, deadly, dangerous memories. immense, psychedelic psychotic episodes. self-loathing post-modern american dreams. i definitely used too many drugs back then, but i fear i also may not have done enough.

    I'm convinced that as a whole album, it is AnCo's best. There is never a dropoff in quality.

    Always feel like I just paid admission to enter a strobe-lit carnival run by doped-up carneys, when I listen to this. :P

    Why are there so few people listening to "Cuckoo"? It's one of the best on the album.
