TTNG - Animals Acoustic (LP)
TTNG's Animals Acoustic isn't a simple rebuild that one would normally expect to hear when anticipating an acoustic album. Like the referenced album's cover, there are multiple color palettes present to create an overall picture that feels less two dimensional and more of a colorful celebration of the layers of music within. Animals Acoustic features musical contributions from the TTNG's friends and contemporaries. Nate Kinsella (Birthmark, American Football, Make Believe) recorded string arrangements found throughout the new release. The Kraken Quartet are featured on some of the band's fan favorites: 'Chinchilla' 'Baboon' and 'Gibbon'. Yvette Young of Covet turns 'Crocodile' into a delicate piano ballad. The Mivos Quartet, Vicky Tremain and Andy Hume contribute even more depth to an album of reassembled songs.
